Reading brings the world to our students! Through hearing stories, children are exposed to a rich and wide vocabulary. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital as they start to read. It is important for them to understand how stories work as well.
Reading helps expose students to new things and new ideas, gain experience from other people and helps you learn to write better. Reading is a vital part of educating our students.
Keeping libraries and classroom libraries up to date in our schools is a priority. Digital and print books are both vital to our schools. Teachers also need classroom sets of books and classroom libraries.
Each year in an effort to support an integrated approach to literacy, the West Ada English and Language Arts department coordinates an all district read. This year all schools (K-12) were provided with books about immigration. The ELA department worked with local libraries to make this a community reads. This yearly all district reads program will continue if we get enough funds each year to support.
