Help me give my students a classroom that they can feel comfortable in.
Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths; sometimes, all it takes is exposure or motivation. My class consists of 20 amazing students. Of those 20, most receive free or reduced-price lunch. They are from low-income housing areas, and some have just migrated to the area. Regardless of the situations they are in at home, I try and provide a consistent home for them at school.
Books should be able to let students learn something new, not necessarily facts and figures, but social and emotional interests as well.
The books that I am requesting for my students will be utilized to expand their view of the world and what books can really be. My goal is to have a class library that will feature complex and diverse main characters with different races, abilities, and nationalities, as well as a collection of books just as large as the school library!
These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. I want my classroom library to be a place that my students really enjoy, and a place where they can feel comfortable. Reading can be both an individual adventure and a journey that we can take together. I want a variety of books that can be read on their own, that highlight each student, but also books that can be read to the whole class at once.
The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.
They will also be able to choose books that interest them. The best way to increase reading ability is to read more, and these books will continue to help my students grow stronger in reading.
