You Might Enter A New World in the Library!
Welcome Back to a New School Year!
It's a new school year and let me allow you to peak into what our library, here at Dolphin Springs Elementary, has new to offer. This year we will expand the bookshelves with even more books...DIGITALLY! YES! Now not only can you check out some "Old School" books, but you can also check out eBooks through our online library on Destiny Quest. We've also rearranged the library to make better space for quiet time, class project, and effective research. Enjoy our quiet comfy reading area, updated computers, tablet use, and fun interactive technology programs that will make learning fun. One example of our new programs, your child will be working with is Write Source®, a digital language arts program that can be personalized and completely covers the Common Core Writing, Language, Speaking, and Listening standards. This program will help master students writing process and grammar, as well as advance their mechanics and usage skills with cutting-edge technology.
Read Your Heart Out
This reading program is sponsored by Pizza Hut's BOOK IT! program. BOOK IT! has bee motivating children to read for over 25 years. Each month they can earn free personal sized pizza just by reading daily.
Scholastic Book Fair
Come join the "fiesta" of reading and the joys of books. Book Fairs help build classroom and the libraries with more books, raise funds, and connect the love of literacy to more children.
Norfolk Tides Reading Program
Once again the Norfolk Tides is encouraging literacy among elementary students around Hampton Roads with rewarding them with free passes to selected Norfolk Tides games just for reading. In the month of March students will read and track their reading progress. Each student who completes the registration form will receive a bookmark from the Tides that will be their ticket to one home game from the month of May to Sept.
