4th Grade Battle of the Books
In November fourth graders were given a list of different chapter books. They are encouraged to read as many as possible and take notes in their battle journals. In April, each classroom is given a qualifying test. The top three students and one alternate from each class will demonstrate their knowledge in a quiz-show format in The Fourth Grade Coker Battle which will be held in May. The winning team represents Coker in the District Battle of the Books on May 23, 2016. More information can be found Coker Libguide.

Research and Technology:
In November Mr. Mata's 3rd grade dual language class worked in the library with the iPads to make an app-smashing project. Students used several different apps to make a presentation over their Dia de los Muertos project.
Numbers, numbers, numbers...
During November 349 students came to the library as an individual (walk-ins). These students checked out books, used the computers or were working on research. This number does not reflect the class visits to the library for checkouts, lessons and research.
A total of 3451 books were checked out of the library during November. The library is always looking for help checking in books and shelving. Even if you only have 15 minutes after dropping off your children in the morning, we are always looking for volunteers.
