Many of the students at the Title I school where I work at have limited access to books, technology, and digital resources at home; but through the school library, they have access to many books, eBooks, and online databases. These students come from diverse backgrounds, and some of the families are faced with the daily struggle to meet the family's basic needs.
As the school librarian, I want to get the students excited about reading.
Through a schoolwide genre challenge, I hope to encourage the students to become lifelong learners and readers.
This year the students at my school are participating in a thirty book genre challenge. The genre challenge will require the students to read books that are myths, folktales, fables, historical fiction, science fiction, realistic fiction, nonfiction, biographies, and poems. As the students read books from different genres, they are working to earn six different digital badges.
Students also need a button to show that they have completed each part of the genre challenge.
The button maker and the button parts will allow me to create genre badge for each student as the complete each part of the genre challenge.
