It’s one thing to have a classroom library, but it’s also about what we do with it. Our support must begin the moment a child enters the classroom for the first time—from learning about their interests to making sure that they have access to the texts they want and need. All decisions we make contribute to the learning environment, so students must be our priority as we build our classroom libraries all year long.
