My students need compartmental shelving for a genre rich reading area.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Second graders are the hardest working students in elementary school. I've taught all levels and come back to second grade because of their work habits, creativity, tenacity, and interest in learning. My students are engaged in hands-on activities that bring out questions, solutions, teamwork, and accolades for thinking out of the box.
We try to foster a safe learning environment.
Students need to feel free from bullying and express opinions without fear of negative comments in a classroom that encourages positive emotional support and eliminates unwanted physical contact.
Our students are very transient and often do not have the reading necessities at home that we may have at school. More than a third of our students are from low-income households. I would like to have an inviting area for students to read with organized books and fuzzy friends to read to during precious free time.
Shelving will enhance the reading area where students have access to several hundred books. Compartments will separate each genre and sticker tagged books for ease in selection and replacement. Several shelving units will enhance an atmosphere in which students will want to read during their free time. Books will be shelved for easy access and viewing, emulating the school media center or public library.
Books are vitamins for the brain.
Reading ability increases the more students have to read. I can increase the volumes of text for students to select from with additional shelving units and increase their interest in reading.
