Seeing Great Books

My students need to be able to see books on a daily basis. By placing the books on a magnetic bookshelf in a prominent area, I hope to spark interest in a variety of genres.

My Students

I teach 5 classes filled with amazing students. They are hardworking, creative, and very enthusiastic students.

The school is a Title I school and 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students are primarily African-American. Many come from low-income families with the mother as the primary care-giver. They lack many things needed to be successful in school but this does not stop my students. They are highly motivated and come to school ready to learn each day.

My Project

I would like to be able to put books around my room in prominent areas so that the students are seeing book titles and covers that are interesting.

The magnetic shelves will help me do this.

I will be able to place books around my room and change them out frequently. Students will be able to pick out books and also exchange books as they complete their reading.

When my students see how much interest is generated by books placed on shelves, I believe more will be motivated to pick out books and hopefully read more at home and be able to discuss in class what they are reading.
