My students need books to read; they love books in series!
Located within a Title I, K-8 building, My classroom community is home to twenty-two students in three grades (6th, 7th & 8th). The students in my classroom are selected to be a part of an accelerated learning program beginning in sixth grade. They must meet academic and behavior requirements to remain in the program. Students work in grade-level groups, cross-grade groups and in a whole class setting for all subjects. This allows them to read, research, discuss, and grow in many ways.
The key to student success is fostering a love of learning and intrinsic motivation while developing academic skills.
Students strive to exceed grade-level standards at an accelerated pace and go well beyond into high-school standards in the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics. Technology is integral to student learning in our classroom as there are many different units of study being taught concurrently. We utilize many apps and research sites including Google Classroom.
This program provides an academic challenge for students, but more importantly, gives them a place to flourish— as a community of scholars.
I am fortunate that most of my students would be labeled as 'readers'! This means they need books! It's a good problem to have. Despite having a school library, our K-8 building does not have a large selection of young adult books that interest middle school students. Many of my students have exhausted the selection in our library, and have to depend on the classroom library and public libraries (which they can not always utilize regularly).
Building a classroom library is essential to motivating and nurturing student readers.
With a classroom library, I can more easily suggest books to students. A large classroom library also makes it more likely that a student, even one that doesn't regularly read for enjoyment, will pick up a grade-appropriate and interesting book.
Reading every day, every week, all year is a huge component of instruction in my classroom. It is my job to teach reading, but more importantly, I want to create readers. I do everything I can to motivate students to find books that interest them, to discuss literature, and to become lifelong lovers of the written word. Building a classroom library suited to middle-school interests can aid in all of my reading goals for students.
