Just Right Books to Encourage a Love of Reading

My students need 7 sets of books to complete monthly book reports. We have used up the few books we have and are in need of more books.

My Students

My students enjoy reading at home and as a way to keep them reading, I send home a book report each month. Our school doesn't have a library so sometimes I'm their only source for books.

Our school is a Charter school in the inner city of Buffalo, New York.

It is a school that lacks resources. There aren't enough funds to buy the books we need. The children are amazing and they love to read because I make it fun for them. They are so grateful for little things and this would mean a lot.

My Project

We need to put a new face lift on our classroom library. I think these new books will help. They have thumbed through the few books we have and they deserve more books. They read at least three times a day. I allow them to read when they have completed seatwork and they love it! They're becoming excellent readers because of it.

When I was a little girl, reading was a way to take me to places I couldn't go.

I would love my children to experience that as they begin to grow. Some children aren't able to visit their local libraries so I want to bring a library to them.
