My Students

My students are creative and curious about their environment. They should have the opportunity to participate in a strong, comprehensible science program. My students come from a variety of backgrounds. A majority of them come from low income homes where they don't always have resources to nurture their curiously.

My 2nd graders are like sponges, soaking up everything that I teach.

However, we are in need of book tubs for my students. I want to create a classroom library that is both organized and enticing to my students. I need to continue to motivate the students and to provide them with intellectual skills and positive attitudes and values that will help them to be succeed in school and in life.

My Project

We are in need of book tubs to keep the our classroom library neat and organized. With the new book tubs, it will make it easier for my students to pick out their favorite books to read.

In order to keep my students engage in reading, I need to rearrange how I set up the classroom library.

I want to have lots and lots of inviting books that are clearly organized. I need my classroom library that supports independent readers with a variety of levels, interests, and genre. I can only make it happened with keeping it organize in the book tubs.

We also need the command hooks to hang up materials in the classroom library.
