Linking Teachers and Students to Resources for Learning

March and April in the Library

At the beginning of March, we Seussified the library. Students heard different Dr. Seuss books read to them, had a chance to have their picture taken in the photo booth and received a Dr. Seuss bookmark.


We all had a good break, even if it was a little wet, during Spring Break. Now it's time to get back into the groove. Spring is officially coming on March 21st and this school year will be over before you know it. We will be reading Spring books and reviewing how to find books in the library for the rest of the month of March.


There will be a lot of testing these next two months, so be sure and checkout the dates the library will be closed below.


April is Poetry month and we will be celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 23rd. See the details below.

IMPORTANT TIDBITS

April is Poetry Month

During the month of April we will be doing poetry activities in the library in honor of Poetry Month. The weeks of April 6-10 and 20-24 will be regular checkout weeks. During these weeks I will be reading examples of different types of poetry when classes come to the library.


The weeks of April 13-17 and 27-May 1st will be Flex weeks. When students come to the library on these weeks, they will be able to participate in poetry activities including building poems, interpreting poems and creating their own poems. The results of their efforts will be displayed in the library for everyone to enjoy.


I encourage you to read poems in your classroom as well. We have a good collection of poetry books in the library, so come on down and check one or two out for the month of April.
