Library Spotlight

April is Poetry Month!

Check out the great resources in the library as you plan your poetry lessons. Check out some old favorites, as well as some new ones! My favorite poetry lesson is "stacked poetry" and my new favorite poet is Brod Bagert. Ask me about both!

-Ms. Vlach


TumbleBook Library

TumbleBook Usage has taken off! Continue to share this resource with your students, and many will carry the habit over to their tablets for summer reading. This is a resource provided to Mills as a part of the ACE initiative.
