My Students

I want to bridge the gap between remote learning and classroom learning this school year. As the Media Specialist at a Title I school, I really love guiding children to discover their reading journey, whatever road they are on. I enjoy the moments when students get excited about books and reading.

Through virtual story times and later in classroom interactions, I would like to bring to life the 10 picture books on the 2020-2021 North Carolina Children's Book Award (NCCBA) list and the NC Junior Book Award list.

These recently published children's books on the official NCCBA and NCJBA lists will be read during both virtual library class and then in person voted on by my students as part of a statewide voting program to see what book is the school and state favorite! Allowing children to lend their voice to what they like about new children's literature is a wonderful way to involve them in their reading journey. Thank you!

My Project

These new NCCBA and the NCJBA books will ease the gap between online learning and in person learning, reminding students that listening to stories is an important, fundamental path to literacy that must be kept alive! Students will explore listening to them in both virtual online story time activities, and in book talk discussions. Curbside library pickup may also be able to put these books in children's hands during remote learning.

Both K-2 students and 4th and 5th grade students will be able to vote for their favorite book in March in person or online!

Students get an opportunity to make their voice heard when it comes to reading, which is awesome and unforgettable!
