Help me give my students an updated classroom library to support their new reading skills and to develop their love of reading!
My 21 first graders attend school in North San Diego County. Like most first graders, they are learning to read. I want to make sure I support their learning by providing books that are interesting to them, and that support them at their various reading levels. Mostly, I want to cultivate their love and enjoyment of reading.
We are part of a school which focuses on developing our students as "Readers, Writers, and Artists." To become an expert reader, students need to read A LOT!!
Although we have an incredible library, it is not open all day, every day. So when my kids are looking for something to read, they often head to my classroom library.
I have been teaching first grade for 15 years, so my library is getting a little tired. I recently had a student bring me a book with the pages falling out, and she said, "I can tell that this book is well-loved!" And it seems like every day, we are finding more and more "well-loved" books in our classroom library!
My first graders are super excited about learning to read and I want to keep the momentum going! This year I have added fun flexible seating and opportunities to read to dogs that come to the classroom. But my library is showing its age.
Help me replace my "go-to's" with the Lakeshore Paperback Classics Library, and improve the selection of books with the Lakeshore STEM Stories Paperback Library to keep the kids engaged in practicing their reading skills.
The addition of books from the Lakeshore Predictable Text Paperback Library will help support my newest emerging readers.
By refreshing my library with these books, my students won't need to look any further than my classroom to find interesting books to enjoy and practice their new reading skills!
