Last year, a group of students at Amity Elementary known as the Website Wizards built a website to give K-6th grade students access to a virtual library featuring student authors, students reading some of their favorite books, and access to full versions of popular books worldwide!
The project was funded through a grant from the Greater Cincinnati Foundation called Learning Links, which allows students to create interesting projects in the classroom. The students determined that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a need for students to have virtual access to books.
The Website Wizards created the site from the ground up, utilizing the district website as a host, and building the site by learning about coding and content management systems.
This year, more than 20 Amity students read passages from their favorite books or read original short stories, novels, or nonfiction works.
