School Wide Plan
Rationale

The benefit reading has on students’ academic achievement is proven by many studies. When students read, they are exposed to skills that greatly enhance their academic endeavors. The more students read and comprehend written material, the higher they score on standard achievement tests. As a result, many school systems employ a variety of reading activities as part of their Library media programs. The following two year plan shows reading activities that our school's Library Media Specialist plan to implement in the future.

At the beginning of each school year, the media specialist meets with all grade levels during common planning time to establish an ongoing meeting schedule. Additionally, the LMS establishes a collaborative meeting with teachers and the leadership team for seamless planning and integration. During monthly meetings, current and future curriculum needs are discussed and materials and resources, provided by the LMS and in conjunction with GPS standards, are evaluated. This monthly forum also provides the perfect opportunities to discuss any resource deficiencies, facilitate needed training, fellowship with faculty and staff.
PR: Once a “muffins and media” calendar has been established, the LMS sets up recurring meeting reminders in Outlook to inform the teachers of upcoming planning sessions.


Collaborative planning occurs monthly and begins August of each year. Planning sessions are commemorated by muffins; coffee and juice and take place throughout the year. - August 2008.

BUILDING A SCHOOL OF READERS"

K-5th

Grade


ELA5R2 The student consistently reads at least twenty-five books or book equivalents (approximately 1,000,000 words) each year. The materials should include traditional and contemporary literature (both fiction and non-fiction) as well as magazines, newspapers, textbooks, and electronic material. Such reading should represent a diverse collection of material from at least three different literary forms and from at least five different writers.

ELA4R2 The student consistently reads at least twenty-five books or book equivalents (approximately 1,000,000 words) each year.


The goal of the program is to encourage our children to read at school, at home and everywhere. For every chapter book or every three picture books a child read (or listened to), he/she filled out a "brick" with the title and author of the book. The completed brick will be placed in a model dump truck located in the front hall of the school. Each day during morning announcements, one or two bricks will be drawn from the truck. Those students will win small prizes.
PR: The school will conduct the kickoff assembly for a school wide reading incentive program, "BUILDING A SCHOOL OF READERS". All the staff members will wear work clothes and hard hats to tie in with the construction theme. Each child will receive a construction related book marker and a supply of "bricks".


Starting in November, each school day, our construction crew will place the completed bricks on the wall of the hall outside the Media Center. That should be exciting to watch the building, a "School of Readers", take shape as more and more bricks are added. Eventually the entire wall will be covered and our "school" will take shape.
