The book fair will be coming to Magnolia Elementary May 6-10! Your child will visit the book fair twice during their library time. Please make checks out to Magnolia Elementary. Rather shop online? Visit our book fair website and place your order from the comfort of your home.
The books will be delivered to me in the library under your child's name, and I will deliver the order to your child. Remember, the more they read, the better reader they become. Reading is key to all aspects of education. Encourage reading by having books available at home or by visiting the public library. I will be sending a flyer home about the importance of reading during the summer and some of the free activities available this summer at the public library.
The Library has been blessed TWICE this year!!! We received a box of books to go along with our project for next year called "Storybook Stem". The books were given to use by KATC Tools for School, after I sent them an email. I also wrote and submitted a grant to a program called DonorsChoose.org and recently woke up to the most amazing email. Thanks to Ripple, all the projects on DonorsChoose.org were fully funded!!! This means that all the supplies I asked for to go along with our storybook stem are being purchased. How blessed Magnolia students are to have this opportunity to create, learn and build. Our younger children will be doing Stem Bins next year. Each bin is filled with materials used to create a certain object. They will be using their brains to try to create what they have been assigned. Thanks to all of you who have donated materials and supplies. I willc ontinue to collect anything you would like to send. If you need suggestions just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you a paper of materials we still need or run out of very fast. I am so glad to be working with your children. They truly make my job so rewarding!
I am so excited for this school year. The goal of the Magnolia Elementary Library is to create life-long readers. There will be lots of reading, writing, questioning, and creating during your student's library time. Their brains will be working hard. Please talk with your child about their time in the library each week. Also, grades 1st-6th will have library books they have checked out each week. Have them tell you about their books to check for their understanding and knowledge. Remind them that they need their books every week in order to get a new one. Please make sure they don't leave their books at home. Students will take quizzes on their books and earn points for a grade in Accelerated Reader for their ELA block.
