Teachers, your classroom library is "top of the class" when it comes to providing access to books, promoting literacy and developing motivated and engaged readers and critical thinkers. Every class can benefit from having a classroom library, not just those lucky English teachers, as greater access to books correlates to greater volumes of student reading! The National Council of English Teachers notes many ways in which classroom libraries go beyond literacy, by fostering community and encouraging an informed citizenry. Kids learn responsibility by helping to keep their libraries clean and by taking care of books they have borrowed. You also empower your students to have a choice in what they read. Currently, 2.5 million students attend schools in a district without school libraries. And believe it or not, there are actually kids out there who come from families of non-readers who just don't know how to access a library, how books are categorized or feel stigmatized for being a "book worm". (We love worms. Book worms, doing the worm dance, but we digress.) Reading Heart wants to give you free books to build your classroom library. With a robust classroom library, your students will grow their relationship with reading and increase their achievement.
