Roberts Library Update

Library Lessons This Week

I am not planning to cover any new material since we have Mock STAAR.

GAY'S class WILL need chromebooks on Wednesday.

All other classes will NOT need chromebooks.

Clarification on Reading Team

In the past, Bridget would reward Reading Team kids with a big party at the end of the year. I did the same thing at Ney in the past. I learned, though, that there were a few problems with this plan. It comes at a terrible time of year, I could never count on the weather, AND the kids weren't responding well to having to wait an entire year for the big reward.

For these reasons, I changed my plan to reward the kids with "medium-sized" parties at the end of each nine weeks. This is much more manageable, it keeps them motivated all year, and the weather is not an issue.

SO...Reading Team rewards are the t-shirt, their picture on the TV in the foyer, and their picture on Facebook.

Accelerated Reader awards are given at the end of each nine weeks.

I hope this clears up any confusion.
