Gift of Reading/Learning
School: Anchor Bay Middle School North
In today's society, children are drawn to electronics instead of books. I want to be able to instill the passion to read into my students. In order to do that, I need to have an inviting and stimulating reading environment filled with books of all genres, shapes, and styles, alternative seating, and mood lighting.New books are coming out every day and genre likes are always changing. It is tough to keep a current library when I do not receive any money through my school. If I could, I would buy books every day. They are an addition for me. Besides having a plethora of books to offer, I would love to have an environment where students want to read. A place with alternative seating to get the students out of their desks. Alternative lighting so the harshness of the fluorescent lights do not distract from the tranquility of the classroom. It would also be great to have signs/posters of famous book covers and quotes. All of these items would allow a Wonderful World of Reading to erupt.
