Castleberry Elementary Library News
Our Library Media Center!
There is a lot going on in the month of April!!
April is National Poetry Month. Be sure to check out our featured authors this month for some great choices of poetry books. We are featuring Jack Prelutsky and Shel Silverstein. There are many other wonderful poetry books in the 811's.
April is also School Library Month. This year the theme is "Lives Change @ Your Library". I will have an interactive display by the SmartBoard in which students can answer a question about how the library has helped them this school year. Please be sure to encourage your students to answer.
Also be sure to read below about our eBook reading challenge. I can't wait to see who gets some free books!
If you haven't seen the news about Tumblebooks, check out the emails about it or ask me for help. These are another great resource for use with your students.
Don't forget that each class will need to use the Library Media Center at least once each semester for a writing or research lesson that we collaborate on. If you have a great idea, please let me know so we can get it planned out!! Also, if you would like help with integrating technology apps in your classroom let me know. I am willing to try them out or introduce them with classes in the library.
We have already had several students turn in their bronze reading log and pick up the silver!!! Keep reading and remember to GO FOR THE GOLD!!
This month I am challenging teachers and students to read more of our wonderful eBooks. We have added more titles this school year by combining with the other elementary schools to share our books.
K-2 classrooms who use the most eBooks under the teachers log in will be able to choose $100 worth of books to be added to their classroom.
The top 20 readers in grades 3-5 who read and write a review of the book they read will receive a free book of their choice to keep.
If you have any questions or need help with log in information, please let Ms. Hall know.
If you would like, you can save the website onto your favorites to make it faster for students to access.
