Mrs. Kelloggs 4th graders at Downsville used library books to make origami!

Ms. Warren's Pick of the Week
LARGE PRINT BOOKS
Here's a few reasons why:
1. Large print makes the book seem less intimidating.
2. Large print is great for anyone with poor eyesight.
3. It's great for teaching students to read.
4. There's a certain amount of comfort level associated with LP books.
This librarian is going to be purchasing more large print books for our elementary schools!
For more information on large print from the perspective of both a teacher and a student, please watch the videos below!
Special thanks to Thorndike Press for supplying the videos.
