Reading Without Walls

A few of the classrooms I've book-talked in this year have heard me quote from author Gene Luen Yang who was recently named National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Mr. Yang has suggested, 'Reading Without Walls' by doing one of these:

  • pick up a book by someone who doesn't look like you-culture, faith, gender, way of life
  • pick up a book on a topic you might have found intimidating
  • pick up stories in different formats

Please share his message with your students/readers!

National Library Week April 11th - 15th

How We are Celebrating

  • Next week, April 11th through the 15th library fines for overdue material will be deleted from a student's account when they donate to the MHS food pantry. We will collect items and remove those pesky dollar amounts from the student's record!
With a smile!
  • GET CAUGHT READING Photo Contest- students tweet to @MHSMediaCenter #MHSgetcaughtreading photos of our reading community lost in a good book. A panel of judges will determine winners. Criteria: authenticity and enjoyment is visible in photo.
  • We also have a book sadly shredded- enter your guess as to its title for a Prize!
*Thank you Barb Tegtmeier for your review!
