As a part of media literacy, students will be checking out books from our iCenter. Students will be given voice and choice in their selection of books to read for pleasure. Over the years, I have observed that when students explore books that they truly want to read, their reading skills improve and their enjoyment increases. Our iCenter has a wide selection of both fiction and nonfiction books at various levels. I can offer students direction and assistance, but the final selection is ultimately their choice. Parents are a big influence on what children read and how often they read. Please discuss with your child(ren) any reading expectations you have and of course model a variety of reading at home as well. Family reading time can be a great way to promote positive reading habits.
Treating our books correctly will help them to last many years.
