Library News You Need to Know
What's Goin' On in the Li-berry?
Kinder-2nd Grade: Lessons from now until Feb.5th will encompass reading as many Name That Book Titles as we can possibly read. Students will be quizzed on Feb. 5th on the titles that I have read to your class. Winners of this competition will become our campus representatives for Name That Book.
3rd-4th: Students interested in being a part of Bluebonnet Reading Club and/or Name That Book will need to work individually on reading the necessary titles. I will keep reminding them to do so. Please remind them in class, too.
3rd and 4th graders will begin learning our new research process, the SOLE Method in library class with me beginning the week of January 11th. This process is a whole new way of thinking with research. It is very student-driven. Hang in there with me and I think you will like what you see. We will do mini-lessons for SEVERAL weeks before culminating with some sort of final product. I am excited!
Bluebonnet Reading Deadline Approaches
Name That Book Competition in Full Swing
K-2 students: I will read as many of the 20 titles as possible in library. We will test over the books that I have read on February 5th. The top 6 students will be our official Ney team and will begin meeting weekly after school to practice for the competition. I will be looking for a teacher sponsor to help me with this group.
3rd and 4th grade: I have asked students interested in being on the NTB team to read ten of the titles from the NTB list (I have specified the ten titles). We will have a campus competition based on these ten titles on February 5th. The top 6 winners will become our official Ney team and will begin meeting weekly after school to practice for the competition.
