    Thank you for supporting our library with your Book Fair purchases!

     

    Welcome to the Learning Commons!

    Every class has visited the Learning Commons and learned a little about how we rearranged the fiction section of the library. The fiction section is now divided into 10 sub genres. (mystery, adventure, historical fiction, realistic fiction, humor, graphic novels, fantasy, sports, animal stories, and scary). This will make it easier for the students to browse for books and find just the right one. 

     Tips to build a strong reader - 

    • read aloud to your student
    • talk about what you read or what your student is reading
    • read 20 minutes every night
    • provide a variety of reading materials

    Happy Reading!
