As a computer teacher of students who receive remediation in Reading and Math, I am interested in starting a library inside our classroom. I am constantly searching for a connection between what is learned from our computer software and what can create a genuine interest in using what is learned. I strongly believe a classroom library would offer my students an opportunity to make that connection. If we had a library of various books for students, they could choose books of their interest. I currently teach 58 students with reading levels ranging from grade 2 through grade 8. We need a library set that stretches throughout these levels. Our school has reading time every morning for 30 minutes. The students have to read a book on their own at least once a week. The classroom library will provide them with interesting books to read and learn from. They will also learn to read more fluently. Studies show that the more children read, the better readers and writers they become. Students will be answering question from the book they read and will write a summary. Then the students will be able to tell everyone in class about the book. Some of the other activities we will be performing in class will be reading out loud with everyone, and playing games like jeopardy, to help them remember exactly what they read or heard. Some of the remediation we will be working on is helping them to read at a higher level by the end of the year. This is my goal for each and every one of my students. Some of the things I want my student to be able to recognize are main ideas, main characters, plots, conflicts and resolution of the story. In order to keep our children learning we must keep it fun and interesting. So I believe it is very important that the students have books that are of interest to them. These types of books can range from mysteries, biographies, and adventurous books and many more. Not only will this library help my students this year but for many years to come as well.
