Open Checkout

Students are doing a great job signing in on the Google form when they arrive for open checkout. If you haven't yet taken advantage of sending an Individual or small group for an additional checkout please consider it. Teachers are welcome to bring their class as well when classes are not scheduled.

If you need a tutorial on how the circulation desk works please let me know. If I am not in the media center during whole class checkouts I ask that you please monitor your students at the checkout desk to make sure they are checking in and out correctly.


Graphic Novels

Through special funding I received from the county we were able to add wonderful graphic novels to our collection, including books on nonfiction topics. Graphic novels are an excellent way to introduce a nonfiction topic due to the sparse text and the highly engaging comic book format. The illustrations also make them an ideal choice for ESL students and beginning readers.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you incorporate graphic novels in your classroom.

Yes! More new books!

The 900+ new everybody, fiction, and nonfiction that we received over the summer have made their way to the shelves to make way for even more new books!

Look for a plethora of new beginning readers and new fiction series titles to debut after the bookfair.

Please let me know if you need a particular title or a book on a particular subject to add to my next to order list.

Hornets Book Bus!

Mark your calendar and get ready.

The Hornets Book Bus will visit Woodhill on Thursday, November 12th at 1:00 PM.

Have iPads - Let's Collaborate!

With procedures in place and the first 20 days behind us please let me know if you'd like to co-teach and collaborate using the Pinnacle iPads I received through our GCS Pinnacle program.

I'm available to meet when it is convenient with you before or after school or via Google Hangout in the evening.
