This year has been filled with positive change for so many reasons. I teach in an urban inner-city school, rich with diverse cultures. Luckily, there are many resources for teachers to use to help guide our students. However, these resources often stop once our students go home for the evening. This year, we started a program called StAR for reading and math. Students read books and take tests for AR points. This year, my students either have already read most of the books in my library or the books are not on their grade level, so they don't have many book options to choose from.
Help me give my students a library that they can be proud of, with the books that are on their level.
My students need more books in their classroom library to increase their skills and foster a love of reading. As our semester is starting to wind down, I hear "Can I switch out my books" more frequently. I want to expose them to more fiction and non-fiction texts. My hope is to have enough books that my students will take them home to read each night and swap them out the next day.
By adding hundreds of books to our classroom library, students will have a bigger variety to choose from each week. They will get to take home their favorite book each night, and come to school the next day to earn AR points.
By donating to our project, you will be fulfilling their soul with a good read that is easy for them to understand, and allowing them to earn points towards their goal in AR.
Students will no longer tell me their level bin is out of books. They will beg to keep reading because their book is too amazing to put down.
