I am lucky enough to be the elementary librarian at one of the greatest neighborhood schools. At all times of the day and year students, teachers, parents, siblings, and community members can be seen walking to school, riding bikes, running on the trails around the school, playing basketball, football and soccer, laughing, and working in our apple orchard. There is no doubt that this community adores its elementary school.
Once inside our school you are met with kind, respectful, mathematicians, authors, scientists, creators, thinkers, readers, leaders, and extremely loved students.
There are 17 classrooms in a K-6 elementary setting. Our school is filled with diversity, including many ethnic groups, challenged learners,and highly gifted students. Students here love to read and are constantly seeking new book titles, STEM projects and a safe comfortable place to go. The library is truly the heart of this great school.
If this project is fully funded, these books will go into kids hands to read. The books on sports, will be especially of high interest. Kids in Alaska love anything hockey. Also books like, Sometimes Jokes Aren't Funny, will help with social emotional learning. These picture books will help our students become caring, considerate, confident citizens of the world. Books about emotion and social-emotional issues can help kids think deeply about feelings and social issues.
Books will be in the library for many kids to read, check out, and enjoy the feeling of reading a fresh new book, the crinkle of the spine opening for the first few times, and of course the smell of the new book.
Reading helps you detect patterns, solve problems, and assimilate new information as if you were living in the characters’ shoes.
