Welcome Back to 2010-2011

It is so hard to believe that school has already started again. After a three day summer vacation we are back into the swing of things around here. Our theme this year is to "uphold the laws of book care" and become a member of the P.E.T. Patrol; Protect Every Title. I ordered this theme through Highsmith and it goes perfectly, or should I say purrrfectly, with our pets in the media center. (Both stuffed animals and real pets)

This blog is to give parents, and others, an overview of the happenings in the media center. I have vowed to blog weekly, but it doesn't always happen. I do try to have a life outside the school.

Our first week was dedicated to bookcare, policies, procedures, rules and the other "stuff", highlighted with interesting read alouds to intrigue our students, highlighted with our annual Shelf of Shame!

Read alouds included:

5th grade: Guys Write for Guys Read, Brothers (by Jon Scieszka)
4th and 3rd grade: Mind your manners B. B. Wolf, by Judy Sierra
2nd grade: Thank you, Mr. Falker, by Patricia Polacco
1st grade: Back to school for Rotten Ralph, by Jack Gantos
Kindergarten: Off to school Baby Duck, by Amy Hest

Happy Reading!
