Current Events in the Library

Third graders are participating in the "Adopt a Shelf" program!  By the end of the school year, each third grader will be in charge of a shelf of books in our library.  They will keep them organized and easily accessible.  This gives students a chance to feel ownership of their library, practice their organizational skills, and become familiar with the library layout.
It's award season in the book world!  We've been learning all about The Caldecott award; the judging process, and the history of the award.  We've been very busy reading as many Caldecott and Caldecott Honor winners as possible, and we will soon find out which book won for best illustrations in 2018!
Be on the lookout for "Book Recommendations" around the library.  Students have placed signs next to books they love, and have written book reviews to help other students find great books.  We're also voting on a selection of new early reader graphic novel series to be included in the library collection.  We're doing this to prepare for the upcoming book fair, which will be held between April 4 and April 13.  Green Meadow students are excited to add a few new titles to the library!
