Readers are Leaders

As we begin our 3rd week of book circulation and the excitement of reading is building we will focus on making good book choices by utilizing I PICK (Purpose, Interest, Comprehension, Know). Our goal is help students take ownership in their reading choices and to develop their love for reading and life long learning.

Why reading is magic...

“What an astonishing thing a book is. It's a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you're inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic."

-Carl Sagan
