  • My Class Needs books to promote love for reading and writing

    Classroom Library Start Up to Promote Early Literacy Classroom Project at Walter Lee Elementary
    Launched November 15th, 2017 Project Deadline April 14th, 2018
    Classroom Size 20 Students School Size 323 Students

    My Students

    My students are in grades 1 & 2. They come from diverse backgrounds and each student's uniqueness creates a beautiful mosaic of different learning styles, interests and cultures. I hope to have a diverse classroom library where students can find a book that they can fall in love with or make a deep connection with. For the students who struggle with reading, I hope my library collection will have a variety of levels so that all children can feel confident reading something just right for them.

    How will this project impact them?

    My project encourages and promotes the love for reading. Having a rich classroom library is important because first and foremost books teach students to read and write, and to be creative and imaginative. Furthermore books help children to inquire, connect and research. Having books that inspire children to think is so crucial in building inquisitive and and critical thinking minds. Having a classroom library filled with a diverse genre of books will also help engage the diverse interests and levels of my students. Research has shown that literacy in the early primary years has been linked to student academic success in the later years. Donations made to my project will help students achieve this academic success. Thank you!
