Mrs. Gaxiola Hernandez from Philadelphia PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Library Centers for Students

Help me give my students centers to use in the library. Let's have multiple choices so students can have fun while working on reading comprehension, literature and informational text.

My Students

I see all 780 students in our K-5 low income/high poverty school each week. We have a very transient population. These students are all eligible for 100% free breakfast and lunches. However, they're generally all great students. Sweet, kind, and ready to learn.

The library is a very busy place.

Not only do we do lessons, we do circulation. We're one of the very few schools with a functioning library with a Librarian. I would love to start doing centers in the library. It's another way to make our library even more awesome!

My Project

I see students for a 45 minute period once a week. However, I frequently do not get them for the whole 45 minutes. I always plan for a full time giving students 20 minutes to choose books. I hate to rush students as it's a joy to browse for a book but they frequently take longer and then the lesson does not get done. This is especially difficult with fourth and fifth graders as they do a lesson all together, versus the grant that gives K-3 iPads to work on.

Working on skills such as reading comprehension and non-fiction/informational text skills, these games and activities will have students learning while having fun!

In addition, they will be able to work independently and in small groups based on when they're ready. By switching to library centers that are short and sweet, the students will be able to browse and still have time to learn in a fun way!
