Ellsworth school encourages reading non-fiction

A goal at Ellsworth Elementary is to get students reading more non-fiction books.

The librarian at Ellsworth is making sure that happens by displaying different non-fiction books in chairs purchased through Scholastic Money.
The chairs are in the entrance of the Library so they are the first thing students see when they walk in.

She rotates non-fiction books on the chairs according to the grade levels that are in the library at that time.

For a student to occupy the chairs, they must check out the non-fiction book that is in the chair they want to sit in, read it at least three times and then score 80 percent or higher on the Accelerated Reader test.

The Queen Creek Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
