Charles H. Hulse Public SchoolOttawa, Ontario 296 / 326 Books Given
Principal Laurie Kavanagh
Many of our students are newly arrived in Canada. Over 80% are English Language Learners and receive additional help in reading. It is important that our students read independently. Time spent on independent reading predicts increases in reading ability. Many of the books in our school library are old and outdated. We would like to have more books that better reflect the topics our students want to, and can, read about.
We would like to have more:
▪ books of interest to 8-12 year olds who are just beginning to read in English
▪ books that reflect cultural diversity
▪ books that support learning of topics such as: maps and mapping, sequencing
▪ graphic novels such as Geronimo Stilton, Bone and Amulet
