I am a Library Media Specialist for an amazing group of kids. Our media center has over 12,000 books to help serve our children and make lifelong readers. My students need extra support and encouragement to make reading a part of their daily lives.
Many of our students live in transient homes with little to call their own.
I'm working diligently to make reading fun and to foster a love of books in my students. The students help me choose the books we purchase each year so that their voices are heard and that I supply them with materials that not only support their interests but materials that support the curriculum as well.
I have challenged all of my students to read and complete a book report on 100 books each school year! We break it down into 25 book segments per 9 week grading period. We have huge celebrations for those who persevere an incentives along the way for all students. Everyday I hear Ms. Miller, "I have x book reports" with excitement and pride in their voice. The love of reading is growing!
I chose these products in order to celebrate my students and their completion of reading their first quarter of 100 books this school year. Marvel's Black Panther movie proved to be extremely popular with a superhero my students could identify themselves with.
I chose items to decorate the library media center, many of which I intend to give away as prizes during the party.
There are balloons, games, stuffed animals, LEGO sets, and more to get the kids excited!
I want to have a huge party to show them how much I appreciate their hard work the first 9 weeks of school and hopefully encourage them, through celebrating, to continue to reach their goal of 100 books for the year.
