Our students love to read! They love reading and they love being read to. Students are continually improving their ability to read more advanced books. One of their favorite parts of the day is guided reading time.
Students enjoy the challenge of reading more difficult books!
However, many of our students are of high poverty. In turn not a lot of reading is done at home. For some the only reading and reading instruction they do is at school. Therefore we want to provide as much variety to students as possible.
Reading is a fundamental aspect of life. In education and helping kids learn to read, kids need books at and beyond their reading level. They need books that are challenging, yet not to difficult. For this reason it is important to have a variety of books for students to choose from.
Reading is important for all aspects of life.
As a small district with high poverty that receives very little funding, it is difficult to get the need supplies for students. Books are a necessary part of helping students become literate. As these books requested are at a variety of reading levels, students will be able to advance their reading capabilities to become top notch readers.
