My students need a well stocked library with high interest books. They also need colorful, attractive labels for the book bins to help them quickly choose a book. This is why the ink cartridge is needed.
I have two classes with 22 students in each class this year since we are now departmentalized. Our school is a Title I school with a majority of our students receiving free or reduced lunch. I have varying reading levels in my classroom, ranging from 5s to 1s on their 3rd grade FSA. I have students with exceptionalities such as autism, ADHD, and learning disabilities. No matter what their level, my students know that I expect them to always give their absolute best effort, and these students rise to the occasion. We are working to develop a growth mindset that will enable the students to persevere when they are working on difficult tasks.
These materials will impact my students in many ways. Having a classroom library that the students are excited about will help the students to develop and nurture a love of reading. These books will ensure that students at all reading levels have access to engaging books that they are excited to read. It will also allow for book discussions with partners on the same reading level.
Finding the right book is half the battle.
The colored ink will be used to create easy to read labels for the book bins. These labels will help me to create a classroom library that is organized, which will make it easy for the students to locate books on their level that interest them. This way they will spend less time searching for a book and more time reading it.
