My class has amazing students who love to learn and grow every day in our classroom! We are currently virtual and my students still strive to be successful. I have a range of student needs and abilities, so it is imperative to extend and promote their learning.
As research shows, one of the most important things teachers can do is instill a love for reading in a child. To do that, I'll need to acquire books that students will not be able to put down. Not only that, but books that they can see themselves in, books that will inspire them, and ideas they will carry with them for life.
Research shows that engagement with literature is one of the strongest predictors of academic success.
If we can get our students reading, their chance of academic success can skyrocket. But too often, students are forced to read books that they have no interest in, that they can't relate with, and that barely speak to their experience. I'd like to change that. This project is a collection of books I've been unable to afford in the past that I know students will enjoy. Help me give my students a love for reading!
