Grant Category: Literacy
Funding Goal: $500.00
Reading is an essential component of all subject areas. The program aligns with a school-wide initiative to increase reading engagement within the classroom and instill in students an awareness of the importance of reading. To accomplish this, the classroom should provide an environment in which reading is clearly valued. The program will include a reading corner that belongs to the children and is part of the classroom where books are easily accessible to them and allows students a comfortable place to sit and read. Students will have the freedom to choose texts for themselves from a range of displayed books. The program will provide opportunities for students to engage with texts on a daily basis to further develop important literacy skills through increasing the volume of reading. In addition, students will be able to borrow books from the reading corner to take
home and share with their family.
