Library Love

My students need sturdy book bins to create an inviting and organized library that will help them become passionate, lifelong readers!

My Students

Sometimes all it takes to create a lifelong reader is one powerful book. Do you remember the one that pulled you in? That book that made you excited to go to bed so you could spend a few hours or so continuing to read... We can make that happen together.

My students are creative, hardworking, and curious.

Many of them love to read already and enthusiastically look forward to talking with me and their classmates about favorite authors, series, and characters. Sharing our love of reading with each other not only makes for a strong academic environment, but truly helps us create a tight-knit community.

One challenge my students face, however, is that many have limited access to books at home. Often they must rely on those in our classroom to help ensure that their reading material is not only right for them academically, but also personally appealing. Having, on average, thirty students in my classroom, therefore means we need lots of variety in our library and have it organized in a way that encourages children to experiment with new series, authors, topics, and genres. Creating a beautiful, inviting, and engaging library is essential.

My Project

I love to read and hope to inspire that same passion in my students. Each day, my fourth grade students have time to read, develop their language and literacy skills, and talk about their books. Currently, while I have a good number of novels and nonfiction texts in my classroom, I do not have enough bins to help my students effectively navigate through them. Thus, they have a hard time making the best use of our classroom resources.

Sturdy bins in child-friendly colors will help create a beautiful and engaging classroom library for years to come.

Their quality is excellent and they can be used for fiction chapter books, nonfiction books, and picture books. They also fit perfectly in my existing library nook.

These beautiful bins will enable children not only to more easily find books and authors they already love, but also to become excited about new series, authors, and genres. Many of my students are former or current English Language Learners, so access to a wide variety of well-organized books is crucial. Clearly labeled books bins will help the library stay organized and encourage students to develop a sense of responsibility, as well. Two of our class jobs are "Library Organizer." These bins will also enable Reading Workshop to run smoothly from day to day.

Thank you so much for helping create an environment where students can both develop and deepen a love of reading as well as share that passion with the whole classroom community! Happy reading!
