In order to listen to the book being read aloud, we will have the audiobook available to those who join our GRA Book Club. If students want to check out a print copy, we can make that available as well.
If you want to join our #GRA20 Book Club, please consider purchasing a print copy of the book and donating it to our student class set. Please let us know if you want to participate and/or are willing to donate a copy by filling out the following Teacher Google Form. Please fill out the form by October 2, 2020 so that we have an initial participant count!
Thank you for posting this Student Google Form in your Classroom to encourage students to participate (Note - this is a different form for the students). This is how they will sign up for the Global Read Aloud and let us know their preference for audiobook vs. print. They will also need to fill the form out by October 2, 2020!

Our next two book selections are Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid and Another Brooklyn by Jacqueline Woodson. Students can choose which book they would like to read, or they can read both! Pickup for the books takes place during HUB time, Tuesdays to Friday between 2 and 4 pm. Our next Book Club Zoom meeting is on October 28 from 3-4 pm.
Students can listen to or read excerpts from highly recommended books and then select a book they want to checkout from our Library. The site also includes a Choice Board and links to the Roseville and Sacramento Public Libraries!
Please Promote the Library Website
Please encourage your students to access my website and the resources that are found there. I have recently reorganized the website to streamline the navigation.
Under Search and Research, students have access to several wonderful databases, including Cameron’s Collection (Health and Wellness ebooks), Gale, ABC-Clio, SIRS Issues Researcher, ProQuest, and more. They also have access to our online library catalog and WebPath Express, which allows them to search vetted websites.
Many student tutorials on how to research, evaluate sources, identify misinformation, access apps and e-texts, and use our online catalog already exist under the Student Help tab in order to help students find information, achieve, and be successful.
Encourage your students to bookmark the Library website and follow me on Instagram @librarygirl7801 and/or Twitter @anhs_lib. You can also post the link in your Google Classroom! Thanks for your support!
If your students are having problems with their CBs, have them go to this link for help! Students will fill out a Google Form and pick a day to come to campus and turn in their CBs. They will be given loaners to use until their CBs are repaired.
Teacher and Librarian Collaboration
Materials Distribution Going Forward
If you are requesting help with non-book materials, please check them out to students with your own numbering system, label them with the student’s name so we give them to the correct person or provide a list of names, and then deliver them to the Library. Then, simply tell your students to come to the Library during HUB time to pick up what they need. Please remind them to wear a mask!
Bookshare and Read & Write for Students with IEPs or a 504 Plan
Any students with 504 or IEPs can access all of their materials in ebook, audiobook, or large print form. Bookshare has an immense collection that includes most textbooks and thousands of free fiction and non-fiction reading materials.
Any teachers or counselors that want to set a student up with Bookshare just needs to let me know who the student is, whether they are on a 504 or an IEP plan, and what their disability is. I can set up an account for the student and assign specific textbooks or reading books or even an entire reading list based on a students' interests (ex. sports books, graphic novels, reluctant reader books, etc...) in about 5 minutes. After setting up an account for the student, I can then share their login credentials with them as well as my tutorials for how to get started accessing their books.
You can email me the student's information, or you can fill out the Bookshare Enrollment Google form for your student(s).
Students with IEPs also have access to the Premium edition of the Read & Write App through the District's site license. I have tutorials for them on how to use the app, and I can also Zoom with them to show them how to use the app in real time if they need any extra help getting started.
Here is the link to my Bookshare and Read & Write App tutorials on my website. Just scroll down to the resource you are interested in.
