Congratulations to Mayfield Elementary School for winning a $4,000 Dollar General grant for the Leveled Literacy Project
September 11, 2015
Mayfield Elementary School has received a $4,000 Youth Literacy Grant from Dollar General. The school will create "The Leveled Literacy Project" to establish a leveled literacy library for the school's youngest learners - kindergarten to grade 2. The literacy library will serve as an instructional resource that will move students toward reading success.
A leveled literacy library is a collection of books categorized by levels so that every child has data determined books that are at their independent "just right" reading level to practice fluency and to develop a love for reading. This project will also ensure that every teacher has books to use with children at their data determined instructional reading level to ensure maximum growth in literacy skills, as taught through guided reading.Read more here
