Just Right Boxes for Our Just Right Books!

My students need book bins to store their just right books in.

My Students

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."-Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! This quote could not have said it better. I encourage my students to not only read every night, but also 15 minutes a day during read-to-self time.

My students are the most determined students I have ever met.

They come to school every day ready to learn and succeed. I teach third grade in a Title-One school that is predominately Hispanic. The majority of my students are English Language Learners (20 out of 21). Many of my students do not have access to books on their level at home. If they do, they may not be of interest to them or they have read them several times. I allow my students to check-out books from our classroom library once a week. I want my students to have a safe place in the classroom where they can store their just right books.

My Project

Having the opportunity to bring book bins into our classroom will allow each student to have a safe place to call home for their books. They will be able to check books out from our classroom library and store them in a place that belongs to them. The book bins will allow quick and easy access for students to grab their books and get straight to independent reading. Since the bins are light and small, they will be able to easily bring them to a comfortable reading spot in the classroom. Not only will my students be able to keep their books in the bins, but they will also be able to store graphic organizers that will help them understand the stories. They will be able to keep a journal and write down their ideas and thoughts while they read.

When this project is funded, my students will be able to keep our classroom library books in a safe place where they will not get destroyed.

They will have a bin that is just for them to hold their just right books. Please help us bring book bins to our classroom so we can continue to become better readers.
