FIRST GRADE

In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, first grade dedicated two weeks to

reading many of his stories. First graders read at home each night to

build their own reading graph in the hallway using “Cat In The Hat” as

a theme to see how tall each student's hat could get. We ended our

Dr. Seuss reading adventure by inviting parents to join us for an

afternoon of crafts, stories, and a snack.

The GES Library participated in reading the ten books on the 2018-2019 Show-Me Reader Award Nominee list sponsored by the Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL). The Show-Me Reader Award promotes reading in elementary schools across the state of Missouri. This award is given to the author and illustrator of the winning book. The winning book is chosen by a vote of Missouri students in grades 1-3.


During library classes, Mrs. Grisham read all ten of the nominated books to kindergarten through third grade classes. After reading them all, students voted for the one they thought should be the winning book. Students at GES completed their voting on Friday, March 8. The winning books at GES were: First Place-Madeline Finn and the Library Dog written and illustrated by Lisa Papp; Second Place-The Magic Word written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Elise Parsley; Third Place-Seven and a Half Tons of Steel written by Janet Nolan and illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez.


Students will have to wait until March 25, 2019 to hear the official winner of the 2018-2019 Show-Me Reader Award. The winners listed above were determined by a vote at Gainesville Elementary School only. Here elementary students are pictured with our school’s winning book.
