Happy November from the Library!
In November, I am thankful for books and for cozy blankets to curl under to read. I hope everyone is enjoying a good library book or a book they picked up from the book fair during our chilly months. Speaking of the Book Fair, thank you to everyone who made it such a huge success. We sold $8,625 in books! The profits made will be used to purchase new books for the Alpenglow Library! I just love getting new books for the kids to read and seeing their faces when they get to check them out!
In Kindergarten and First Grade, we are finishing our Mo Willems author study. Students will be bringing home the book we've been working on for over a month. Please take some time to read the book with your student and complete the last page asking them what their favorite Mo Willems book was. Next, we will be moving into a study of story elements and story structure.
Second through Sixth Graders read The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. This book is about perservering, always trying, and never giving up. Then, students used their imaginations to transform dots into other objects. In November, we're starting the month by learning about how to use the dictionary. In the age of technology, using a dictionary can be a lost art. However, I think students can still benefit from learning about this resource.
Thank you for continuing to support your student's reading passions. The library is a wonderful place, because students can choose something they WANT to read instead of something they're TOLD to read. I love reading, and I hope your students do as well.
