Reading is an essential component of all subject areas. The project, “The Star Struck Reading Corner,” aligns with a school-wide initiative to increase reading engagement within the classroom and instill in students an awareness of the importance of reading and our classroom theme…”Reading Hollywood Style!”. To accomplish this, the classroom should provide an environment in which reading is clearly valued.
The “The Star Struck Reading Corner,” will be a reading corner that belongs to the children and is part of the classroom where books are easily
accessible to them. Students will have the freedom to choose texts/books for themselves from a range of attractively displayed and varied genres. The “The Star Struck Reading Corner,” 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.
