Goal

Increase the number of books circulated in and out of the library by students and teachers. Creating a welcoming atmosphere for the library for students, teachers, staff and parents. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will have a warm and inviting atmosphere along with different areas which will be determined by rugs and alternative seating. The areas will include but are not limited to:
Research area (technology, magazines, rescources)
Primary
Non-Fiction
Current Events
Sports and Gaming
 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will increase the amount of time they are reading by having the opportunity to chose books, magazines, online resources in this inviting area.
This will increase their confidence as a reader which in turn will increase their ELA scores. The more we practice any skill, the better we get!
