1000 Book Club Off to a Explosive Start

The Kindergarten class has shown tremendous excitement about the Harrisonville 1000 Book Club. We have enrolled 77 Kindergartners into our program! If your Kindergartner is not involved yet, it is not too late to sign up! Go to and fill out the enrollment form to get started. Preschool students are invited to participate as well! This program is open to any child in the Harrisonville School District age 2 through Kindergarten. Share our program with family and friends!

Missouri Building Block Picture Book Award Nominees

Each year the Kindergarten students get their first experience with award winning books! They learn that books get awards for being special in some way, just the same as athletes and TV stars can get awards. During our Kindergarten library visits in the fall we read all 10 Missouri Building Block nominees as read alouds. Once they have all been read we have a voting week! Every student is given a ballot with the 10 nominees listed along with a picture of the front cover. Each student fills out their ballot and submits it. The votes for each class are tabulated right then so they can see how the votes turned out for their particular class. At the end of the voting week, the book winner for our school is announced over the intercom. After the winner for our school is determined a class copy of the winning book is bought by the librarian for each class. This is a great introduction to the concept of winning an award, determining why we favor a particular book vs. another one, and how to vote. Plus the students love to get their class copy of the winning book!
