We've all heard the saying, "Everything old is new again!" Well, that couldn't be more true when you look at the conditions of books in my classroom library. My students' favorite books have been read so many times that they are actually falling apart! Tape and staples have held these books together for years...yet my students still love to read them over and over. We need to update our favorite books with new editions.
Our public school ranges from grades three to eight.
It is located in a small, suburban community. My third grade students are eager to learn, highly motivated, and determined to read as many books as possible this year! Some have already challenged themselves to read 250 books! They are always striving to be life-long learners and do their best. Each student is unique, which makes our school a wonderful place to teach, learn, and grow
Replacing these wornout books with newer editions will continue to enhance the classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently. Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, but with so many readers handling them every year, they're falling apart! These books have been chosen with my students in mind-I have watched my readers continue to reach for the same classic titles year after year with excitment and enthusiasm. Students will be able to read these classics, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time and sharing their literary thoughts with classmates.
With these new books, my students will continue to be exposed to the classic stories from their parents and grandparents' era!
Also, readers will be able to continue to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently at their own reading level.
They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in "the classics" during independent reading, and this project will only help enrich their experiences with the printed word.
