I work in a school where we are fortunate enough to receive $1000 worth of books every school year. Our students definitely benefit from having books to read at school because they often are without books at home. However, we have run out of space to put our books. We really need another bookshelf along with plastic bins for holding books that are separated by genre. We also need a rolling cart to hold books that are on display when we are learning about units of study. This month we are studying poetry. If I could have a rolling cart to put poetry books on display for the students and for holding writing materials that will be used when students are writing their own poems we could really work productively this month. My students will benefit from having the books that we have in the classroom accessible and organized.
