My classroom is made up of 20 amazing learners. They come to class ready to learn despite the obstacles they face prior to stepping foot in the classroom.
We are a Title I school and almost all of my students are English language learners.
My students love coming to school because I make learning fun. My students work hard each and every day. Unfortunately, they need supplies that I can’t provide on my own. This includes books for students to read and keep at home.
"The world is full of magical places, and the library has always been one of them for me. A library can be that special place for our children." -Julie Andrews
I am requesting high interest stories for our classroom library.
My students will use these books to read during our independent/buddy reading time. They will also listen to them as read alouds.
All of the books that I have chosen are nonfiction, high interest, and easy readability. I have found that the majority of boys in my classroom are drawn to nonfiction titles.
I also plan to send home a new book each month for students to keep at home and build their home library. My hope is that students and families will read these stories together at home. Reading aloud to children is extremely important. Stories help to improve vocabulary and most importantly they foster a love for reading! These books will also provide extra special time for families to bond with their child.
By helping to fund this project, you will be putting books into the hands of children. These books will allow my students to improve their reading skills and foster their love of literacy.
