Every child will learn to read, write, and make-meaning across all content levels at grade level or above.
One School, One Book
This year students will embark on an adventure to Antarctica as they travel through the pages of this year’s One School, One Book selection: The Adventures of a South Pole Pig, by Chris Kurtz. Students will maintain a reading passport and travel across the Atlantic Ocean to the southernmost continent. Thank you, Title 1 funding for this interactive family engagement event!
The wonderful “100 Book Challenge” from the American Reading Company is a leveled-literacy program all about nurturing a love of books from the very beginning. Every morning, readers in grades K-3, shop for books to read during their Reader’s Workshop block. During Reader’s Workshop students read independently or with a teacher. Students will bring book bags home each evening, including weekends, to be returned the following school day. Inside the book bags will be a collection of at least 5 books, and a Reading Log. Students earn and record a “step” for every 15 minutes of eyes on print. Families are invited to help students achieve steps by reading at least two steps (30 minutes) each school night.
