January 2016

News from the Library...

We will hit the ground running with inquiry in January! 4th grade will be researching examples of cause and effect from history, and 5th and 2nd grades will kick off their inquiry projects later in the month. 3rd grade continues to work on filling their awesome interactive notebooks with knowledge about language and resources, and 1st grade will be wrapping up their Caldecott unit with the announcement of the 2016 Caldecott Award this month. Kindergarten will be focusing on distinguishing Fiction and Non-Fiction books as well as using the different parts of the library to find materials. PreK will continue to visit the library for weekly stories and activities!

We are thrilled to announce that our school was one of only five in Oklahoma to win a grant from author James Patterson's Patterson Partnership! The $4000 grant will fund two Family Literacy Night events, extended library hours, and books and materials for Ike students! More information will come as we continue to plan these events.
