Great Books Help Create Great Readers

Help me give my students the opportunity to develop a love of reading while participating in the South Carolina Children's Book Award Program.

My Students

I'm starting a new job as the School Librarian in a small Title 1 school in South Carolina. According to our 2018 numbers, 92% of our students live in poverty. As the school is in a rural area with no public library, the availability of books and internet to students outside of school is limited. Many of our students begin their schooling behind their counterparts who have access to educational resources and struggle to attain grade-level performance - especially in reading.

The school encourages students to always work hard, take responsibility for their learning and discover their individual strengths.

The faculty exposes them to as many educational opportunities as the budget allows in order to help students see the possibilities a good education will provide. My goal is for my students to cultivate a love for reading that will open new worlds for them and help them succeed in school and in life.

My Project

With these books, my students will get to join with students from across the state by participating in the state's Children's Book Award Program. The program nominates 20 top-notch books each year. Students who read at least 3 titles, get to vote for their favorite to help choose the best book.

Participation in the program encourages students to read some wonderful new titles, try some new genres and be a part of the state-wide program.

I can't wait to introduce my students - especially my reluctant readers - to these great books! Throughout the year, the library will encourage students to read these titles through booktalks, video presentations and visual displays. Students will log their books by completing an online or printed form to encourage their writing skills.
