We started the school year with Practice lIbrary books and talked about book care.
Please keep library books clean and dry.
Consider putting your water bottle in a plastic bag in your backpack.
WATER is the most common thing that DAMAGES BOOKS. If a library book is damaged or lost, you will be asked to pay the cost of the book.
READ - RETURN - REPEAT - READ - RETURN - REPEAT - READ - RETURN - REPEAT
PLEASE help your child see the importance of reading and encourage them to read to themselves, to you, and even to a pet! We suggest the students read OR ARE READ TO for 20-30 minutes a day. Success in reading will help build success in other subjects also.
We will be using Accelerated Reader (AR) this year instead of Reading Counts.
The classroom teachers and the library will be getting more information out to you about AR.
We want students to read and understand what they have read,
while building on their skills and helping them to fall in love with reading.
It is important that students read a book that is “just right” for them, not too hard and not too easy.
Grades K, 1, and 2 will do a quiz instead of handing in sheets of books read. Grades 3-6 will do an online quiz after reading the book.
There will be prizes again this year for students who participate well in AR.
This link for ARBookfinder will help you and your child know if a book has AR points.
They can read books from home also, and take the quiz during school.
Grades 7-8 will also participate in AR. This is an exciting opportunity for students in junior high school to continue to become readers for life!
