Informational Books for a First Grade Classroom Library
My students need new high-interest informational books for our classroom library. First graders all have diverse learning needs and must be able to choose books about topics that interest them and are at their reading level.
My first graders are a group of diverse students ranging in learning abilities, but they all eager to learn and absolutely love reading. My students are so proud about their reading achievements and excited to learn and read more. It is rewarding to see how enthusiastic they are about learning, sharing ideas and working together.
We have a wonderful school community made up of fantastic students, helpful parents, and caring teachers.
Our school is one of the oldest in town and we lack newer resources for our students. I work to create a safe, welcoming and enriching learning environment for my students.
I have worked hard to create a classroom library full with engaging and quality books for my student to read and enjoy, but I would love for my library to have more informational books for my students. Students read books from our classroom library independently everyday during reader’s workshop. The addition of these informational books to my library will help reluctant readers by providing them with topics of interest. This engagement will help to improve their reading.
Informational books are an important addition to creating a balanced library that helps to engage all readers.
This project is so important because literacy skills are the foundation for students' success throughout school. I want all of my students to become motivated readers who LOVE to read!
