Winskill Loves Books

Winskill Loves Books

During the month of February we will be focusing on our love of reading! We have so many characters, books, series, authors, illustrators, and genres of books to enjoy! How can you incorporate this love into your daily activities? My challenge to you is think of new ways to share your love! Perhaps your grade level wants to choose students to share a book they love on the morning announcements! Maybe you want to spend some time reading "red" books! Pair up with a buddy classroom and read! Practice a Google Hangout by reading a book with a classroom in another grade level or another school! Check out the tablets and read Winskill's ebooks! Please share your ideas and try new ways to bring out the love of reading!

Our Staff Loves Books

Let's share our favorite books! Please stop in the library to have your photo taken with your favorite book! You may bring your own book or peruse our shelves! If it works better to send me a photo, go for it!
