October in the Library

Check out what we've been up to in the PHS media center!

Fall Fun!

October has been a fun month of reading and research for the students and me. I was excited to get the chance to work with a few teachers, as well, and look forward to the opportunity to get teachers and their classes inside the library media center even more in the coming months.

How We've Been Learning

During the month of October we:
  • Participated in conversations about fiction and nonfiction texts. "Z is for Moose" was a favorite!
  • Defined and identified characters and setting.
  • Used information gained from a text to demonstrate understanding of theme.
  • Used and created text features, like diagrams and captions, to help us understand information in a text.
  • Recalled information from experiences and gathered information from sources to answer a question.
  • Explored different online and print reference sources.
  • Started becoming comfortable with logging on to out student accounts and accessing the internet.
  • Differentiated between facts and opinions.
  • Continued our research projects to build knowledge about a topic, such as a foreign country or garden species.


October Circulations: 2,620

Featured Resource: Juvenile Series & Sequels

Looking for the title of the latest book published in the Fly Guy series? Check out Mid-Continent Public Library's Juvenile Series & Sequels database where over 36,000 books are searchable by title, author, series, or subject.

Looking Ahead

In the month of November I am looking forward to some professional development opportunities with my fellow library media specialists. I am very excited to be attending the American Association of School Librarian's National Conference in Hartford and hope to gain new skills and explore resources to bring back to the Primrose Hill Community. Ask me about what I learned that might benefit your own classroom experience!
