Learning in library

All students visit the library every week to participate in a literacy lesson and check-out new books. Each week students are exposed to different genres of literature through read alouds.  Students in kindergarten may check out one book each week.  Students in 1st and 2nd grade may check out two books each week.  Students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade are able to check out three books each week.  Student work is displayed throughout the building to help create a welcoming environment.

You've Been Book'd Program

All classes had the opportunity to participate in the You've Been Book'd program sponsored by the Abbett Librarian, Mrs. Tanguy.  Classes that signed up would receive a red Book'd bag on their classroom door each week with a new read aloud inside.  Teachers would spend 10-15 minutes reading the story to their class and then return the book to the library to travel to another class.  Students and teachers love the Book'd program and eagerly await their next Book'd bag.  All classes that completed the first Book'd challenge received a free book of their choice for the classroom.
