Snowman Contest!

Our Snowman Contest is winding down and I am always so impressed by students creativity! Any last minute entries need to be received by Monday, February 3rd and winners will be announced the second week of February.

What Happened in the Library this Month??

World Read Aloud Day - Wednesday, February 5th!

I am very excited that next Wednesday is World Read Aloud Day! This is a world wide event to promote reading aloud to children (which, of course, I am a big fan of!). Authors and Illustrators also offer free Skype visits on this day so I decided to go all out this year and schedule Skype visits for every grade level. Here is the list of authors/illustrators lined up for next week:

Kindergarten - Nidhi Chanani

1st Grade - Bea Birdsong and Mark Hoffmann

2nd Grade - Monica Carnesi

3rd Grade - Emma Wunsch

4th Grade - Jill Diamond

5th Grade - Kim Ventrella

I hope it is a meaningful experience for students. It is always so inspiring to talk to authors and illustrators! One student commented just yesterday: "Wow, I have never Facetimed with a celebrity before!" . Take some time next week Wednesday to read an extra book aloud if you can in honor of the special day!
