Our school is located in a remote area of Alaska that is full of rolling hills, rivers, and lakes, and an abundance of wildlife including birds, moose, caribou, bears, and more. The many families of our students live on the abundance of wildlife for their survival. Our town of Tok is the first settlement that travelers reach when traveling the Alcan Highway after leaving Canada.
My students live in a small community with about 1000 people living year-round within the immediate area.
We experience some of the coldest weather in the state. Students love to be outside in the snow, sledding, mushing dogs, or just going for walks. Students have a lot of time to spend indoors as well, reading and playing games with family and friends. Families teach their children how to safely enjoy the outdoors all year long. So many students love to read on the cold, winter nights.
My students are becoming readers. We have been reading books on a variety of levels, but need more books at the beginner reader levels. Students are quickly running out of the level readers before being ready to advance.
My classroom library is in need of multiple titles at a given level for Accelerated Reader books.
Students need to have a larger selection of books to increase their reading abilities. My students need more books at each level to practice and master before advancing to the next level. Students are eager to read and quiz. Help me continue to make reading enjoyable.
