It is our goal to encourage students to read and to promote the enjoyment reading by all of our students. Students are exposed to different genres of books and are encouraged to sample all types of books.
Collaboration is the key component to teaching style found in our library. By planning with the classroom teacher, the librarian offers lessons that reflect what is being taught in the classroom. By making this connection, the students are given the opportunity to reinforce what they are learning. Students complete projects and lessons that go along with Science and Social Studies SOL’s for their grade level.
In addition to library lessons, students participate in the Accelerated Reader Program. Students read books on their reading level and take computerized tests to check their comprehension of these books. They receive points based on the accuracy of their answers. Each nine weeks students that meet their AR Goal participate in AR Celebrations.
Also, students at Woodberry Hills participate in Book It! This year the theme is, “Read Your Heart Out.” Students will receive a certificate to receive a personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut when they reach their reading goal. These goals are set by each grade level.
Students are given the opportunity to come to the library once a week to check out a book. However, if a student needs a book before their regular Checkout Day, they may come to Open Checkout each morning from 8:00-8:30.
