My Students

My students are 3rd graders, low income, mostly Spanish speaking and bilingual in English from Central California. We are a Title I public school (99% free lunch). They love to read but don't have books at home. I have a classroom library which I'd like to make more accessible to them, by having two rolling carts for books at their level, both fiction and nonfiction. This will be most helpful and allow students to have their own cubby at their own eye level. Please help to make this happen! Thank you for your support!

My Project

Students will be able to access books at their level in fiction and nonfiction and check them out without having to go to a shelf that's too tall for them. Each bin will be personalized with their own books for the week. A cart on wheels allows for mobility in the classroom.

Students will be able to store up to about 6 books in their carts and not get them mixed up with other projects or reading materials.

This organized cart will encourage students to read because their books are more accessible, and the teacher can see what they're reading, as well. There isn't adequate room in their desks to hold books, especially if they're working on a research project.
