Help me give my students sturdy, easy to handle book bins that are portable, easy to care for, and manage.
I teach a wonderfully energetic group of twenty-five 3rd graders! I strive to expose my students to as many new things as possible to spark their interest and develop a lifelong love of learning.
I grew up in the community I serve, and I know the difficulties my students and their families face.
Our families are extremely hard working, but many struggle to make ends meet. Many do not have much free time to expose their kids to all that Chicago and the surrounding suburbs have to offer.
All of my students are native Spanish speakers, and English learners well on their way to becoming bi-literate, bilingual, and bi-cultural. They are full of questions, make fantastic connections, and they are amazing at expressing their thoughts.
We are a family in our classroom. We work hard, help each other, keep each other accountable, and we begin and end every day with a hug or high five.
As a dual language teacher, I know how impactful having an ample selection of English and Spanish titles can be for English Learners. Our goal is to build a well-organized classroom library. Our grade level was very fortunate to receive a donation of picture books and chapter books last year, and my students have been enjoying new selections, but we need help caring for our new classroom books.
These book bins will allow my students to maintain and take ownership of our classroom library.
My goal is to organize our books according to the theme, and language so that finding and returning books will be stress-free, mess-free, and carefree process. Our current set up makes it hard for students to pull books out and put them away. Many of our books are being damaged because of this. As of late, our "book hospital" has been overflowing!
Students will be in charge of making sure our library stays nice and neat by checking that books are put back in its rightful home. These baskets will also allow students to carry books around the room, so they are not waiting behind other students to select books during literacy rotations.
