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

What's happening in our library this week?  New books, just in time for checkout before testing next week!
We've got new nonfiction books, favorite series, and favorite authors.
Did you know that the "My Weird School" series now has nonfiction companion books?  Check them out!
These are just a sampling of our latest book order; Ms. Margocs will be putting new books out every day this week!

Just in time for their animal unit, kindergarten classes have been listening to a nonfiction Armadillo book, Glow: Animals with Their Own Night-Lights, by W.H. Beck.
Ms. Margocs and the students have been fascinated by these bioluminescent creatures; some even make ocean waves glow!

Fifth graders are reviewing keyword searches and the effectiveness of using online databases versus Google.  Our third grade classes are practicing their virtual shelving skills with the online game "Monarch-Order in the Library".

Fourth graders have been busy in Writing Camp this week, where Ms. Margocs was honored to be the prompt presenter this morning.  Can't wait to see what pieces the students produce as a result!

Next week, we will be closed for testing on Tuesday, and open only for regularly scheduled lower grade classes on Wednesday--no individual visits that day, please, to accommodate the grades that are still testing that day.

Thanks to the Bindel family and Mrs. Wafford for posting pictures of their reading over Spring Break!  Be sure to check out #RROCKREADS on your social media platforms to see how our district's learning community likes to connect with books.

See you in the library this week!
