Outstanding Organization!

My Students

Hi, I am a second year teacher teaching in South Carolina. I teach at a Title I, low income, high poverty school, and I absolutely LOVE teaching there. My school serves free breakfast and lunch for all students. A good majority of my students receive backpack lunches for weekends.

My students read 1-2 grade levels below their 3rd grade level.

Several of my students speak another language at home. My students lack background knowledge and home resources to further their education.

My Project

My students need an easy to reach bookshelf and bright, colorful bins to hold their new books. In order for my students to know what books we have, I want them to be organized by genre to make it easy to find books. The large classroom timer will help my students manage their time from anywhere in the classroom. I am trying to encourage my students to become lifelong readers and learners. I believe if my classroom library is organized they will be more inclined to read the books I have in the classroom library. Please consider donating to my sweet and smart third graders.
