My students love books they can interact with and learn about the world around them. They have vivid imaginations and reading only feeds their love of creating new worlds. The library is a time for them to find their own things to learn about. This responsibility is not taken for granted and they love sharing new things they learned all by themselves.
I have chosen to include several items that will be used by the children themselves when they come to the library. The book set I have requested is for the many bilingual students I have in my classroom who are used to reading in Spanish and can advance both languages as they read these bilingual books. The bins will be used for the library place savers that the children will be making themselves and then putting in their class designated bin. The library does not have a whiteboard so I have also requested giant paper to write new words we learn and books we want in the library. I think this will be a great way to engage the students. I have also included reading trackers for kids who have trouble following along in books and may get overwhelmed by all the words. I have used these previously and the kids always get really excited to use them. Please help me make my library a fun environment that kids are excited to be a part of. Thank you!
