Elelmentary School Reading activities

Mark Twain Elementary School in Niles aims to promote summer reading and fun, informative ways to keep kids busy during the summer - 'make and take' session. The students will be making a journal and a bookmark."
To foster reading during Summer 2012, multiple community partners created One Jackson...Many Readers. Research shows that students who read throughout the summer continue to grow academically.

Racine Reads: Dream Big! was developed as a holistic approach to literacy advancement.  A recent study reported that the average elementary school student read 40 books each school year, yet only 34 percent of students are deemed "proficient" in their reading level.

Barrow Elementary, media center is the hub of the school.  For example, pre-kindergarten students used studio equipment to write and film weather forecasts; kindergartners researched various topics using databases; first-graders created movies about the seasons; third-graders researched and created designs for a new state park, fourth-graders created book trailers advertising authors and fifth-graders taught social studies to one another.
