From the Library

Welcome to Second Semester!

 

In kindergarten and first grade, we have been learning about fiction and nonfiction. We read one fiction and one nonfiction book about the same subject to see the difference between fiction and nonfiction. Students learned about the life cycle of the butterfly. In second through sixth grade, we learned about graphic storytelling including: comic strips, comic books, manga, and graphic novels. You may be seeing some graphic novels coming home in the near future as students dig into this format of book.

 

January 22 - 26 is The Great Kindness Challenge week in the library. We will be learning about kindness throughout the week in library classes. Check out this website to learn more.

 

Speaking of challenges, thank you to everyone who completed the Winter Break Reading Challenge. We had 71 students complete the challenge! Each student recieved a letter from me with a new bookmark. Ten lucky winners were pulled for a prize of a brand new book to take home.

 

Mark your calendars! We will be having a Barnes & Noble Book Fair on Sunday, April 29. More information will be coming soon! This will be a great time to visit the book store and support the library!
