TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need a shelf to house our collection of Big Books to make them more accessible to everyone.
The students at my school are curious, joyful, collaborative learners from racially, linguistically, and economically diverse backgrounds. I work in a Spanish dual-immersion classroom in which about half of the students primarily speak Spanish, and the other half primarily speak English. Each student at our school works to learn and improve both languages as they develop into bilingual and biliterate citizens.
Working in a classroom of emerging readers, I want to create a library that is beautiful, inviting, and organized to spark my students' interest in reading to learn and reading for pleasure.
In a district that has been struggling to fund many supports for our students, teachers have been relying on donations from the community and outside contributors to get our needs met.
In my classroom, I try to create a culture of wonder, excitement, and joy around reading. With my emergent readers, this culture is a key step that piques their interest and motivation to learn how to read. One of my favorite literacy activities to share with my students is reading Big Books. The pictures and words on each poster-sized page are big enough to do fun literacy activities with my whole class. We read together, search for syllables, find rhyming words, and learn vocabulary in Spanish. I have a collection of Big Books, but, as you hear in their name, they are very big! I currently have no accessible place to store them.
My students love the classroom big books and would get more use out of them if they had access to them.
This shelf is kid-sized and also includes a magnetic whiteboard so students can create their own literacy activities with magnetic letters and their own writing.
I have looked around our school campus and in our district's furniture warehouse to find a storage unit similar to this one with no luck. A shelf like this will bring all of my Big Books out from behind cabinet doors so my students can enjoy them!
