Scholastic Book Fair Success!

A big thank you to our Behlau community for coming out in December to help support our book fair. Our profit from the book fair comes back to our library and students, and will help with library supplies and future author visits.

Also, a BIG shout out to the parent volunteers who helped run our book fair.

The large colorful and fun designs of text and images can make reading enjoyable for all students. Students can also listen to books. What an enjoyable way to learn about the world!

Next Month At A Glance

Starbooks Challenge Coming Soon

We are beginning our first annual reading challenge. This year our reading incentive is focused on PICTURE BOOKS. Research has shown that picture book reading promotes literacy, language/vocabulary skills, sentence structure, story analysis, visual thinking and reading engagement (Librarianship, 2017). For these reasons, picture books are now being used in both high schools and colleges.

For the month of February, classes in each grade level will compete to see which class can read the most PICTURE BOOKS (chapter books or non-picture passages do not count).

The winning class will have a reading celebration at the end of the month in the library!


How does it work?

Students and teachers will "log" each time they read a PICTURE BOOK. EACH GRADE LEVEL HAS THEIR OWN GOOGLE FORM TO LOG THEIR BOOKS THAT HAVE BEEN READ!


You will be able to find forms on our Behlau Library Website next month or on Schoology.
