Burton Media Center Update

Follow us on instagram @burtonmediacenter


Happy Spring! We have been busy in the media center celebrating March is Reading Month! Thank you to everyone who helped us kick off the month at Read in the Park. We enjoyed listening to the authors speak, as well as spending time with Darth Vader and the stormtrooper! Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat were also in attendance!

Johnathan Rand visits for Family Reading Night!

Mr. Rand, author of the popular Freddie Fernortner, Michigan Chiller, and American Chiller series, visited Burton on March 12th. He toured the school, looking at all of the amazing doors the classes decorated in his honor. These were his two favorites, though he had a hard time choosing from all of the great entries!

Cleaning out your toy boxes?

During the months of April and May we will be focusing on activities that provide students hands-on learning experiences, especially those that relate to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics). I have lots of fun things planned for our students, but could use your help! If you have any of the following types of materials at home that you no longer use, please consider donating them to the media center. Materials can be dropped off at the main office, just mention they're for the media center

- legos or other building blocks

- pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, toothpicks, etc.

- modeling/building items

-tangrams, pattern blocks

Me as a Reader projects

The 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades have been working on Me as a Reader projects, which are now finished and hanging throughout the school. Students spent time thinking about their reading habits and interests and did a really nice job setting goals for themselves!
Encyclopedia Britannica

Students can access Encyclopedia Britannica using our school account from any device with internet access. The user name is Berkley and the password is student! There are lots of great articles, videos, and pictures for use in projects.

"Why fit in when you're born to stand out?" - Dr. Seuss

The Young 5's, kindergarten, first, and second grades have been enjoying our favorite Dr. Seuss books, and we took some time to practice drawing The Cat in the Hat. I think they did a pretty great job!

That's all for now! Enjoy the end of the school year, and keep reading!
