My students need storage and organizational tools for our classroom library!
This is a class full of eager, independent learners!
We are a strong community of learners and are looking forward to an exciting year in 2nd Grade!
Like many classrooms, my students vary greatly in their needs and abilities from struggling to gifted. While we are classified as a Title 1 school, my students come from a variety of backgrounds.
My class is made up of a community of risk takers.
I acknowledge my mistakes openly because I want my students to be persistent risk takers willing to try, even at the risk of public failure. As a teacher, I am helping to shape whole people and that stretches beyond academics. The drive to learn, interest in the world, ability to cooperate, and willingness to either give or receive help are just a few of the skills needed to be successful in the future.
If you think of a classroom library as a cozy, welcoming space where students can read quietly or browse through a rich collection of texts, you are only partially correct. The fact that classroom libraries are places for storage and quiet is only one small part of their purpose. They are, in the broadest sense, the backbone of classroom activity. Much of what goes on each day draws from or occurs in or around the resources and space within the classroom library.
The effective classroom library also functions as a gathering spot where students and teachers can express their lives as readers.
Think of it as a place that makes books exciting, that sells reading. It should be a place students can't wait to get to. Here they can talk about their reactions to books, write a critical review and share it with peers, or draw a poster to advertise a favorite book. Research shows that classroom libraries help students attain reading achievement
