“Ready…Set…Read!” Leisure Reading with a Meaning Media Center Initiative

for Robert Shaw Theme School 2017-2018

Welcome Back Students and Families,

We are excited to kick off a new school year with our Robert Shaw Theme School reading mindset “Ready…Set…Read!” where we are focused on the goal of moving our students’ reading levels up the scale. Our school Library Media Program will be centered on the Leisure Reading with a Meaning mission plan. With this mission, my primary focus is to encourage the practice of active reading by helping students see that reading is a fundamental foundation that is connected to everything that we do. As the Library Media Specialist, I will also continue to coach your child with book selections that meet their personal interests in order to growth their reading strengths. It is my strong belief that children should enjoy reading, and that enjoyment is what will create excitement and enthusiasm about reading frequently as well as growing to read with confidence in their abilities. I want to make certain that the joy of reading is deeply tied into all of our content matter, and also emphasize the importance of students remembering that reading is fun!

Have You Taken an AR Test Today?
 
Here at Robert Shaw our students are growing our reading goals by participating in a school-wide reading initative that supports our Accelerated Reading Program (AR). Students will receive 1 Tiger Buck ticket if they achieve 80% mastery or better on their AR quizzes after reading their selected books. 10 Tiger Bucks tickets will equal an invitation to our Fall Festival Luau for 2017. Encourage our Tigers to begin reading and earning their tickets today!

With a strong teaching background in English Language Arts, extensive experience as a Literacy Coach and also years as an Instructional Coordinator, I come to Robert Shaw Theme School with a heart filled with the love of reading and writing. I have made certain to carefully select new books that serve our students’ interests, and I look forward to them starting the check-out process. I will have some important tips for parents that will come through my newsletter on the school website that will talk about different things to try at home in order to bridge the growth of your child’s reading skills, and also different methods that you can put in place at home to improve your child’s reading practice in an ongoing manner. Basically, the relationship that your child has with reading should exist and be exciting everywhere—in the classroom, in the library, at home and beyond! 

I look forward to meeting all of you! Come and visit.
