FLIGHT

FLIGHT (Falcon Literacy: Inspiring Great Habits Together)  is the sustained silent reading program at SLMS. During FLIGHT, students select and read school-appropriate material that is interesting to them. In addition to reading independently, students engage in activities that allow them to talk about the books they are reading. Teachers get to know their students, their interests, and reading styles to help them make the most of this reading time. In order to provide students with easy access to appealing, high-interest materials, each FLIGHT teacher has a well-stocked classroom library. Students may also read materials from home, the SLMS library, or the public library. Students are permitted to read eBooks if they own an eReader and choose to bring it to school. Students should download eBooks at home if the device requires connection with the Internet for the download process. The Library Media Center offers a collection of eBooks that students may download while at home as well: LSR7 Overdrive (eBook) Collection. FLIGHT takes place each Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7:30 – 7:48.
