This Week In the Library...

September 15th is International Dot Day--a day to celebrate creativity, courage, and collaboration.  Inspired by Peter H. Reynolds's The Dot, SES students will be thinking about how they'll make their mark this year!

Check back soon to see how we celebrated!

This Week in the Library...

This week, students will be learning about the Bluebonnet program.  Every year, the Texas Library Association chooses 20 books for the Bluebonnet reading list.  Any student who reads at least five of these can vote for their favorite on Bluebonnet voting day in January!

I'll be sharing these read alouds with the classes visiting the library this week:

Third Grade will be reading The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt.

Fourth Grade will be reading Lester's Dreadful Sweaters by K.G. Campbell

Fifth Grade will be reading excerpts from Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo

Don't forget, these are just a few of this year's excellent Bluebonnet nominees!

Have a great week!

Let's take a #shelfie!

Over the past week, SES students have been practicing library procedures (and having a little fun, too)!  Here are some awesome students who won the library review game in each of their classes!  As a reward, they got to take a #shelfie (a picture of themselves with some books) in the library.  Way to go, guys!

(I love how the Pigeon is photobombing this one!)

This Week in the Library...

This week, all grade levels will be continuing to practice library procedures.  We'll also be reading about some characters who sometimes have trouble following the rules but who love to use the library!

Third grade will be reading Library Lion by Michelle Knudsen.

Fourth grade will be reading The Library by Sarah Stewart.

Fifth grade will be reading an excerpt from Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key by Jack Gantos.

Have a great week!

Welcome Back

Welcome back to school and back to the library! This week, students will be attending library orientation with their classes. The Pigeon (from Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus) will be helping us learn about how the library works! What do you think? Should we let the Pigeon use the library?
