|Welcome back! Where will READING take YOU this year?|
I moved the Dorothy Canfield Fisher book display this year. The more flexible locations allows for taller books and more kids to browse at the same time. It's also a little more prominent and, hopefully, easier for the kids to find. We will be doing a fun Battle of the Books with these books this year, so I'd love to get as many fourth and fifth graders as possible reading them.

Fourth and fifth graders are starting the library year off with a QR code scavenger hunt. They had to find 24 locations around the library, scan the QR code to find out the word for that location, then put the words in order to get a quote. It's a fun activity with a Harry Potter quote at the end, but unfortunately the quote was a little above most of their heads. They enjoyed the search though! Next time I'll make my own version and use a different quote. :)
|Technology AND freedom to roam the library?! Score!!|
This year the students and teachers have all been divided into five "houses," indicated by color. I'm in the Blue house. At our first school-wide assembly on Tuesday all of the kids learned what house they are in and then we did some fun activities with our houses.
