We would love to see all the ways and places students read over the summer. You can take a photo of your student reading and email it to me. I will post their photo on the library website as well as in the library. I can't wait to see all the kids reading!
The summer slide is not a slide you want your children to be on. Here's a great article excerpt about the importance of reading with your child every day and how it will help to maintain their abilities. Think of it like practicing an instrument or a sport. If you don't practice for three months, you can fall really behind.
I am including a link to different summer reading lists for all different ages. Additionally, you can visit the library Pinterest site for lots of different book lists. It's located under the Resources tab.
Just keep reading!
Oh the Places You Can Read!
Students can have fun reading this summer in unusual ways and places. They have a checklist they can use to keep track of all the different ways such as while wearing a hat or under a tree. Please keep this checklist in a spot where they can check off the different places. Bring the checklist back during the first week of school for a small prize. The checklist is online here as well.
Lincoln School will be celebrating Poem in your Pocket Day on Thursday. Everyone is asked to find a poem and keep it in your pocket all day. When you see people, you can ask them to read it to you.
Lincoln School is thrilled to have author / cartoonist coming to our school on May 3rd. He has a new book "Marty Pants" that he has written and we look forward to visiting with him. Personalized books can be purchased using the order form below.
Lincoln School is excited to announce we have acquired a reference website for all students to use in their research for this school year.
World Book Online has two databases (one for K-2nd Kids and one for 3rd-4th Students) that are timely and easy to use. The website has thousands of high-interest, readable articles packed with illustrations, videos, interactive maps, and timelines.
Students are able to access the database from their iPads in school. World Book Online is also available for the students to use from home. The username / password for use at home is river11 / forest. The link can be found on the library website under Resources.
We are bit overdue with our thanks. However, we owe a big debt of gratitude to Mrs. DuBois and Mrs. Powers for all their time and effort during the book fair. We also want to say thank you to all the many volunteers who made it happen. We truly appreciate all the work that went into having a successful book fair. Just look at how they transform the library into an amazing book store!
