Abstract

This study was conducted to determine how primary classroom teachers effectively develop a classroom library of high interest books that meet the demands of primary students. Many methods of collecting data were used including In Class Book Logs, Student Interviews, Parent Surveys, and Direct Observation of a second grade classroom in an urban school district. Throughout the study, Second grade students filled out In Class Book Logs and that information was used to add more high interest books to the classroom library. Students were interviewed at the beginning and end of the study to see if their feeling about themselves as readers had changed due to an increase in high interest books being added to the library. The results indicated using In Class Book Logs when creating a classroom library of high interest books was beneficial to improving students' feelings toward reading and themselves as readers.
