Ms. L's Class Library

My students need high-interest fiction and non-fiction books.

My Students

I teach reading enrichment to students who are well below grade level. These students have not had the background at home to encourage the skills and enjoyment of reading.

Many of my students come from a low-income background, and English is the second language for many of them as well.

These readers who come from some tough backgrounds have requested more non-fiction books that are high-interest and fiction books that are engaging for them. I am interested in adding to my classroom library so that these reluctant readers will discover reading material that they enjoy.

My Project

I would love to add to my class library. I have a bookcase that is ready to house any new contributions to my classroom library! I just need donations to help ignite their love of learning.

My students ask daily for a larger choice of books that will interest them.

They want books that connect to their lives and have topics that are exciting for them to read. I would love to help them find these stories.

These books will help my students build an enjoyment of reading and increase their progress through high-interest fiction and non-fiction books.
