My Students

My students hail from a small town in Southern Mississippi. The media center is in a fully inclusive public elementary school that educates approximately 600 students from a variety of diverse backgrounds. More than fifty percent of our students come from low-income homes. They range in age from five to ten years old and are in kindergarten through third grade.

The students come to the library eager to read and ready to learn new things.

The library supports all curriculum standards in all areas. All classes visit the media center for an hour every week.

My Project

My students need books about sports! The sports section of the library is one of the most popular spots in the school! But the books in that section are in sad shape. Many are lost, outdated, and have been repaired so many times that it's hard to find a page without tape.

Reading about sports improves literacy and keeps those active kids interested in reading more!

NFL football team books will lure in a devoted bookworm or a die-hard sports fan that needs coaxing to open a book.

These sports books can help students discover that losing one's self in a good book is one of life's greatest pleasures!
