"Can we read all day?" That is the phrase I hear most mornings when I greet my classes. They love to read. My students beg to get comfortable and read their latest find from the library or the most treasured tale from their own collection. Many of my students yearn to soak up the stories that launch them into a different country, continent, universe or even galaxy.
My students come from all different kinds of backgrounds.
There are some students who live in different housing. They have different living situations as well. Some live with parents, others with grandparents and even some that are waiting for their forever home. Hurricane Harvey hit our area hard. From being out of school for a week to some students being displaced, this year has been anything but normal. Through it all, these students in my class are here to learn and need the supplies to help them have a well balanced education.
I am requesting classroom library organizing materials, reading games and totes for group desk supplies. A huge classroom library is great...unless it is hard to find a book quickly. Having a library that is organized can help students locate a book and open an adventure.
Games that help students sharpen their reading skills and strategies can be a great way for students to gain confidence.
I hope that the games I requested will help my students to sharpen the strategies and skills that were taught in whole group.
I have also requested totes for student supplies. A student cannot work without a pencil or markers. Having an organized place where materials are placed will give consistency to a students school life.
