My students need book bins, comprehension charts, and a chart stand.
I teach third grade at an urban elementary school. All of our students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. My students live in a book desert with little to no access to books. However, that does not prevent them from loving to read!
Everyday when I read aloud, they always beg to read just one more chapter.
They come to school every day full of stories and tales to tell. They love to share about themselves and work together in cooperative groups. My students make everyday a new adventure and full of energy.
I am a newer teacher and I am working on making an inviting classroom library that encourages students to read. With constant use, my book bins are quickly falling apart and our classroom library is becoming quite a mess!
My students need a well structured and inviting environment to help improve their reading skills.
The large bins will enable me to organize all of my books by level, making it easier for students to find their "just right books" during their library time. The teaching charts will help me teach many different comprehension strategies for students to use. A chart stand will also help during lessons to display the different anchor charts our class creates during our reading workshop lessons.
