For the Love of Reading!
The Academy 2014-15 Fundraising Initiative is to provide a comprehensive literacy program in every classroom to foster independent reading. Help our Academy students experience the love of reading by supporting a comprehensive and mobile library in their classrooms.
Each book collection consists of approximately 150 books to be used for read aloud, independent reading and as mentor texts to support a successful writing program. It is a balanced selection of Classic titles, and a variety of Genres, Authors, Studies and Content Areas. Each collection contains 50% nonfiction in order to expose students to a broad spectrum of books.
Our PreK3/4 classes will receive an “Early Childhood Read Aloud” library while our K-8 grades receive a “Leveled Library” in every classroom.
A “Leveled Library” is a collection of books organized by levels of difficulty from easy books for emergent readers to longer, complex books for advanced readers. The books are in a mobile cart that teachers can move around in the classroom. It makes the books easy to see and accessible for small hands.
Help sponsor a leveled library today!
