Amazing library spotlight

Our library recently added 12 brand new chrome books for students to use in all sorts of exciting ways. Our amazing 5th graders have been using them to research for their up coming non fiction books.

Mrs. Willis has been working hard (rearranging, organizing, decluttering) in order to make our library even more student friendly than it already was. She added a student self-checkout allowing all of our readers to get new books whenever they need. A brand new student reading area has been added with a huge comfy rug to lay on, as well as several bean bag chairs for students to relax on and enjoy while they read.

Instructional Focus:

  • K: Understand, make inferences, and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of poetry.
  • 1st: Analyze, make inferences, and draw conclusions about the author's purpose.
  • 2nd: Understand, make inferences, and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of drama and poetry.
  • 3rd: Describe the characteristics of various forms of poetry and how they create imagery.
  • 4th: Identify and analyze how an author's use of language appeals to the senses, creates imagery, and suggests mood.
  • 5th: Understand, make inferences, and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of poetry and provide evidence from text to support their understanding.

Tips for parents:

Read at home with your student as much as possible. Research shows that reading for 20 minutes a day at home can have a significant impact on a student’s educational outcome.
