Classroom libraries are a resource for independent reading that provide opportunities for students to practice reading skills taught by their classroom teachers. Every effective reading program provides students daily time to read independently.
The classroom library is typically the resource that supports children’s daily independent reading of self-selected books. This collection of print materials and media is used to conduct research and complete projects that are a part of classroom instruction.
Additionally, independent reading builds fluency. Unless students can read fluently, understanding what they read becomes difficult. Children who read substantial amounts of text improve their reading fluency and, therefore, their reading performance.
