My classroom library IS my happy place!

Given the choice between adding fewer books or adding more bookshelves, I always choose the bookshelves. I love for my students to be surrounded by books everywhere. I think it’s a visual reminder every day of the importance and priority of books and literacy. It is their favorite part of the classroom, too! I feed off of their excitement. They light up whenever we add books to the library (which is probably part of why I spend so much time and money on books…I spoil my students!).

I firmly believe that access to all types of books is key in building future readers and book lovers!
