For the past few weeks, First Program students have been reading a selection of FIVE fantastic picture books, keeping one essential question in mind: which of these books deserves to win The Dalton Award? This student choice award will be granted to the book that best meets the criteria discussed: Artwork, Creativity, and Excitement. Students will be exercising their right to vote in this book election, set to take place the week of May 16th. We cannot wait to see which of these incredible choices will win!
Want to join in on the fun? Did you miss one of the books? Find read-alouds of each of the choices by librarians Jordy & Christine in THIS FOLDER.
This week in the library, second grade students have discovered a mysterious locked box! Working in teams, they used the catalog to locate various books, finding more clues inside. They managed to crack the combination to the lock, only to discover... another locked box inside! Will they be able to solve this mystery? Find all their clues? Discover what's in the new, smaller box? Only time will tell!
