Goal

Increase reading engagement and achievement of 4th graders at Bay Vista Fundamental. Create a lifelong love of reading and books.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will read high interest fiction and non-fiction books in book clubs, independently, and with the teachers.  

 

Benefits to my students

Reading achievement will increase among all 4th graders. Students will gain the love for reading and books which will translate into a lifelong habit of being a reader. Literate community members are productive community members.
