My Students

My students are in elementary school in a rural community in eastern North Carolina. Their interests are extremely varied, but the one thing they all have in common is curiosity and creativity! Our students are dedicated and run with any learning opportunity provided to them.

Literacy, technology, and social awareness are big parts of the media center's environment, and our goal is to mesh all of these so that students have broad and exciting learning opportunities all day, every day.

This year, one media center goal is to increase student collaboration. A way in which we can do this is to provide students with access to not only books but other hands-on materials and resources.

My Project

Many of the students at my school are reluctant readers and struggle with reading overall. In order to boost their self confidence in their fluency and overall reading ability, we have created a Book Buddies program. This involves students coming into the media center and choosing a book and a related plush book character to read aloud to. The program has become so popular, we need more "buddies" to support all the readers who wish to participate.

By reading to a non-human, students will be less flustered when making a mistake, and in connecting the book to their "listener," their enjoyment of reading will expand.

Donations will benefit my students by giving them access to plush book characters to serve as book buddies. This will impact numerous children who have difficulties with reading fluency.

By utilizing the Book Buddies program, these students will gain confidence in their reading skills and grow as readers.
