Earhart Literacy Community

We want students at our school to be immersed in a culture of literacy. We want to have quality books available at all times. Students will be reading carefully chosen books that will inspire a life-long habit of reading. They will then have opportunities to engage with fellow students, teachers, and parents in thought-provoking comprehension discussions and activities. Our goal is not necessarily that every child is going to love reading, but that every child makes progress in a positive way. We want to see kids interested in engaging with text! “Incremental movement in a positive direction is our ultimate goal.”

Here is a list of all the books that have been Earhart Literacy Community selections since the program started in 2016:
