I Need Something to Read!
My students need books that make them want to read! Middle school students are picky about the books they like to read. My students WANT to READ but NEED GOOD BOOKS!
Students who read books have a chance to learn about themselves, the world around them, and improve their vocabulary too! It is important to keep middle school boys and girls engaged in reading so they can build life long reading habits.
We are a small, rural middle school where students don't have access to book stores or the luxury of e-readers.
The school library is the main source of books for the students to be able to choose from. We have boys and girls who love to read and others who don't. The main reason the students give for not reading is that "they want a good book to read" and they can't find one in the library they like.
Students will be able to check out the new library books and read them for pleasure. They can also use the books they read to reach their goal of reading 20 books a year. Our students have open access to the media center each and every day plus they come for a scheduled visit with the ELA teacher. During this time, they can relax in the reading center on bean bags and comfy furniture and enjoy reading their books.
Having just the right book can make a difference in a student becoming a life long reader or not.
Students crave new books that are current and reflect their interests. My school budge allows me to order only 20 new books a year- my students and I need to reach out to others to help us purchase new books for everyone to use.
