My Favorite Word Is Organize!

My Students

If you ask any of my former or current students what my favorite word is, they will all reply with, "Organize!" Our classroom library is overrun with books in broken bookcases and needs to be reorganized. We need new bookcases to organize our classroom library.

I teach a wonderful second grade class of 24 students from all over our city.

We are a magnet school, so some of our students have an hour long commute on a school bus, one way, just to get to school! The students in my class love to learn and they keep me on my toes to keep the curriculum interesting.

My Project

I have a reward system for students to read books. Students are required to read two books independently every month. For every ten books that a student reads, they get a prize! Having a newly organized library will help students find books that interest them and encourage them to read more books.

We recently received a large donation of new and used books for our classroom library.

The problem is that it doesn't all fit. I would love to make our library more user friendly to support students to read.
