Classroom Books play an important role in more than just your classroom library. They should be integrated everywhere from students' desks to the media center. Click below on your grade level and see some great ideas on how to make your classroom a print-rich one.
Encourage independent reading! Children should be free to circulate and select books for their own interests and enjoyment.
Get students interacting with books. Fill this area with audio equipment, computers, and software for a multi-sensory experience with text.
Differentiate instruction, grow content knowledge and advance literacy skills with small groups. Trade books, big books and leveled titles, both fiction and nonfiction, help every child practice and apply what they’re learning.
Practice makes perfect with books and materials for independent work or skill reinforcement.
Expose students to more challenging texts than they may be able to read on their own while building vocabulary, oral language skills and comprehension—all by reading aloud.
