New Mexican (Newspaper) - December 15, 1996, Santa Fe, New Mexico H2 THE NEW MEXICAN Sunday December 15 1996 FACES AND PLACES Lorraine Goldman Partners at Work Grants fund outstanding proposals With all the technological goodies dancing before our eyes the most effective way to teach reading writing and speaking remains the ageold one adults with books in hand interacting with kids No where is this better understood than among Santa Fes public school teachers The educators understandjas well that reading and books must compete with much flash ier activities for children The days of simply handing out books and doing rote learning are effectively over if teach ers wish to communicate not only the importance but the magic of the written word Last week I described sev eral creative teacherinitiated activities to make this happen funded for small sums by com munity donors working with Partners in Education Here with a continuation of those descriptions Rosemary Benavidez the Carlos Gilbert Elementary li brarian has linked her project with the federallyfunded Reading is Fundamental pro gram that provides free books to students This year reports Rosemary Carlos Gilbert will focus on additional parental in volvement a book character parade a storyteller and an ice cream social to coincide with the book distributions and Car los Gilberts 20th year of par ticipation The program in cludes a sustained silent read ing period every day for the whole school staff and chil dren alike The grant from theJournal North will buy ad ditional books and the services of a storyteller Alameda Middle Schools librarian Kathryn Lopez has another excellent idea Her small grant provided by Schepps New Mexico Develop ment Corporation will buy books but the selection com mittee will be students in the li brary science classes not adults The students will read and discuss the SFPS Board Policy for book selection read reviews of books in library journals and local papers and survey students and faculty as to interests and needs Stu dents will then set guidelines to follow in choosing books Each student will then be responsi ble for choosing one book for purchase and will process for shelving the book chosen Carol Gillilands Poetln TheClassroom project for 200 second through fifth grad ers at Cesar Chavez Elemen tary takes a different tack Poet Bill Higginson is provid ing poetrywriting workshops in which the students learn to write from different perspec tives and with different meth ods Each child then selects one piece for publication for all the students and for the library Thanks to the Domanica Foun dation for the needed for this project Nancilee DAngelico knows how important the homeschool connection is in getting kinder gartners and first graders hooked on reading Her pro ject Literacy Connections from School to Home and Back provides a range of emergent reading books that are age and ability appropriate Students choose their books and take them home to share with their families This pro ject at El Dorado Elementary will strengthen the childrens love for reading by sharing nu merous high interest books with their families at home throughout the year This project was underwrit ten by US West Communica tions and the Hotel St Francis At Larragoite Elementary teacher Sheryl Reese has older students in speech and lan guage therapy paired with kin dergartners to help the younger children gain lan guage and literacy skills Not only do the younger kids re spond to the older children says Reese but the older stu dents gain
