For Your Wish List!

In the survey linked to our last newsletter, we asked what were some of the books that inspired you as a young reader. Two series frequently repeated in the responses were Anne of Green Gables and Harry Potter. Congratulations to survey respondent Laura Davis who was the winner of the drawing for a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble or Flyleaf Books.


During this season that for many is focused on giving, we have compiled a set of professional resource books that could make the cut for any elementary school teacher's Amazon (or PTA $ or school instructional fund) wish list! We have included information for each title on where it is located in our building if you would like to preview the book and/or borrow it for a while. The starred "editorial staff" pick from the entire set of recommendations is "The Reading Strategies Book" by Jennifer Seravallo.


Please click on the survey link in the newsletter to take a super short survey. One survey respondent from MGES will win a $5 gift card of your choice to either Amazon, Barnes and Noble or Starbucks.


We hope everyone enjoys their winter break!
