Our Reading Interventionist, Betsy Hood, has implemented a truly successful reading initiative.
Scholars at KCA have been delighted to have access to a library on wheels. The literacy initiative this year has included establishing a book drive collection and requesting PTO resources to order books for the collection. First readers were selected and received Golden Bookmarks when the cart was first introduced. Since then, scholars have anxiously awaited weekly book cart access.
Parent volunteers have regularly guided scholars during the checkout process, which is quick and efficient. Scholars have been encouraged to list topic and title requests in an on-going commitment to keep interest peaked among readers.
Each Thursday, scholars are able to select books from the cart. Another book cart is under construction to meet the needs of younger readers as well. Before long, a second cart will be making its way to our scholars.
Literacy is a BIG deal at KCA.
