Families of my 5th grade students,
As you have seen on the page about our class, we are doing Daily 5 each week. We have some classroom books, and of course we have access to the school library, but if any of you have extra books at home that are laying around not being used any more and you don't know what to do with them... may I make a suggestion?
If you have extra books of any kind laying around your house or collecting dust on your book shelves, would you be willing to donate them to our classroom library? It doesn't matter if they are chapter books or picture books. Even non-fiction books are great. We'd like to have a wide variety of books for our students. We have students of different reading levels and interest in our classes and we'd love to have enough of a variety for each student to find a book they can read and also be interested in. So if you don't mind and would like to help us, please contact me via email, and we can set up a time for you to bring those to our class or you may send the books with your students.
I would greatly appreciate everyone's help with this addition to our classroom library. Also, if you have some books that you would like to loan our classroom. I will take a picture of them, make a list of them and make sure you get them back when you like. I will also stress to the students that they take very good care of your loaned books. A few students have been so kind as to share some of their personal libraries with our classes and the other students have been enjoying these new books.
Thank you all so much for your help!
