Media Center

All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof,
for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of
God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Welcome to the WCA media center! It is a known fact that students work better and are more effectively when they are working not just for a grade, but because they are excited and interested. So, why not make learning exciting and interesting?  What better way to do this than by celebrating reading incentive goals, offering a coffee bar, and teaching literacy skills with singing, dancing, and interactive games and activities on the Smartboard! Through these exciting activities, students are still learning the old fashioned Dewey Decimal System, traditional research, and literary genres. To bring students into the 21st century, we use tools such as the Super 3 and Big 6 Research Processes to develop independent, self-driven work habits. We not only read books, we make them come to life through acting out characters as well as creating and presenting computerized Vokis and Google slides.

We have a great time in the Media Center and enjoy serving all students! It is a blessing to teach these students and be able to pray alongside of them. Our desire is to help them continue growing so they can fulfill God’s total purpose for their lives!
 

READING INCENTIVE PROGRAM

We have a weekly reading incentive program where students read at least 15 minutes each night. Students have a bookmark that parents initial nightly to keep up with their child’s reading progress. This bookmark helps your child take ownership of their reading and encourages responsibility in bringing them to media class each week. We celebrate with students that have met their reading goals at the end of each quarter by having a party in the media center!  We will end the year with a special event in May, along with earning a Principal’s Award for those students who successfully completed their goals for 3 of the 4 quarters.
