Our students have every disadvantage imaginable. Even though we are located in the poorest area of the United States, I’m amazed at how our students persevere. Students come to school to receive a hot meal and shelter. We put in every ounce of effort to meet their specific needs. Although they come to school every day with many obstacles in their way, our main goal is to have our students continue to expand their education every single day. We set goals together and challenge them to meet and surpass those goals and become productive citizens in their school community.
These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read novels 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, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. All of these books have been chosen with my students in mind. I have watched them the past few weeks of school read titles just like these, and I have also asked them what type of students will be able to choose books, which will help them continue to enjoy independent reading time.
