It's Wednesday! What's happening in the Sommer Library?

Our library was turned into a Science Fair today!
Third, fourth, and fifth graders presented their projects to volunteer judges, who scored them with rubrics.
Kindergarten, first, and second graders entered projects, too!  All of the displays were moved to the cafeteria this afternoon for tonight's viewing and awarding of ribbons.

Since the library was closed for presentations, Mrs. Woodul had time to process some new additions to our library collection.  Be sure to check out what's new on display!  Also highlighted this month:  realistic fiction, books about sports, and winter books.

In the Book Nook, first and second graders are drumming to Drum Dream Girl by Margarita Engle, an Armadillo Readers Choice story.  Kindergarteners are listening to We Forgot Brock!, a Texas 2x2 book by Carter Goodrich.

Bluebonnet Voting is going on right now in the library!  Third, fourth, and fifth graders who read at least five Bluebonnet Award nominees will receive voter cards and choose their favorite book online.  Thousands of students all across the state are participating in this process; the winning author (and illustrator!) will be invited to speak at our annual state librarians' conference in April.

Author Nathan Hale is coming to visit third and fifth graders in February!
