Reading Journey

Help me give my students a larger classroom library. We do not have a library on campus and I would like to provide the most amount of reading possible to all my students!

My Students

I see these students as my own kids and I love each and every one of them. I am utterly so grateful for having these 25 students, being a first-year teacher. These students are the best group of students a teacher could have and I wish I could give them the world, but I can't. These students are an incredible group of small adults who are respectful, sensitive, honorable, and outstanding. As a first year teacher, I can't help but put every ounce of effort into them and their growth. My students come from various backgrounds and from a low-income environment.

They enjoy arts, reading, music, computer coding, and every chance of creativity they can get.

They enjoy the classroom library that we all work and pitch in to collect books for. They enjoy the arts and crafts we get to do with certain standards and I enjoy creating memorable moments with them all.

My Project

My students enjoy reading a good book on a daily basis, but it has come to the point where they've read every book I have on my shelves (I only have two shelves!). We do not have a library or a librarian on campus, so my students are very dependent on the books I have available. I have a large range of readers (from second grade up to seventh grade level) and my books never seem enough.

My students run to my book shelf every morning, anticipating a new arrival of books.

When new books arrive, my students take turns and get in line to be the one who gets to read it next. I believe in reading and giving students enough time to read everyday. I believe reading sparks the imagination and gives every individual a sense of creativity in many different aspects. I want to be able to expose my students to the different types of language, literature, and have them explore the unknown. These additional books will be a small amount, but will be an exceptional addition to my library and I know my students will value them.
