November in the Library

posted Oct 31, 2016, 9:24 AM by SHEILA WOOTEN JONES

The theme in the library this month is Harvest.  We are highlighting A Harvest of Award-Winning Books in addition to supporting curriculum by exploring the topics of harvest, animal adaptations, colonization and Thanksgiving.  The library uses fiction and non-fiction book pairings when possible. Being familiar with the parts of a non-fiction book is helpful for research and information gathering so all grade levels have been learning and reviewing book parts during library visits. 

We begin our Lonely Book Program. Students will be able to check out a Lonely Book in addition to regular checkout.  Lonely Books are books that may not often get checked out.  The students have an opportunity to review the Lonely Book in addition to enjoying extra reading material. With the upcoming breaks having extra reading material is beneficial.

Our annual Cornucopia Coloring Contest will run from November 1 through November 23.  The contest is a highly anticipated Fall activity! All entries will be displayed in the library.
