Today a Reader, Tomorrow a Leader

Help me give my students books for our classroom book clubs. Having a variety of books will help to engage all readers.

My Students

Each of my scholars contributes to our unique classroom culture. They all come from a vast array of cultural backgrounds, economic statuses, and academic and social needs.

I want to continue advocating the value of developing relationships within our classroom to meet the needs of all my scholars who each have unique learning styles.

The school has a strong focus on setting scholars up for success through academic content areas, and we want each student to succeed in learning. Students are pushed to reach their highest ability. All of my scholars appreciate all that has been given to support them and value the help that others provide for them.

My Project

A majority of the books provided to my students are not relatable, purposeful, or even interesting. Increasing the variety of book titles in my classroom will help open the door for my students to share their knowledge, thoughts, and wonders.

Also, my students are reading at various reading levels (from Kindergarten to 4th grade) which means I need a wide range of book choices to suit their needs.

The purpose of the book club is to get students excited about reading by providing them the choice in what they read and the collaboration of discussing what they are reading with their peers. As a result, they will become lifelong readers.
