Nobody Puts Books in the Corner...

My students need bookshelves to store and house our "bursting at the seams" classroom library!

My Students

Our elementary school is a growing, dynamic neighborhood school of about 420 students in Corvallis, Oregon. It is a Title I school and has a wide range of students from diverse backgrounds - socioeconomically, racially, and culturally. It seeks to provide a rich, engaging curriculum while encouraging positive behavior. It celebrates abilities and believes in the possibilities of students. My classroom will be an extension of these ideals and goals...a place to be brave, be kind, celebrate mistakes, and work hard.

My Project

Currently we have a lack of useable book shelf space in our classroom. One of the biggest challenges is finding appealing and easy to access storage for my lower level books. As many students are needing to find and be pulled in by easier texts that are at their reading level, they are forced to dig deeper in the corner of our low bookshelf...literally hidden in the bottom corner of a bookshelf in the corner of my classroom.

I would love to allow all of the books in our classroom to be out in the open, on display and easy to locate and dive into.

Receiving new, sturdy bookshelves would allow for better organization for students to find what they are looking for. Additionally, I want all students to feel like books at their individual reading level are given equal status, placement and value.

Thanks for helping organize our classroom reading community for soaring into literacy!
