New Year Library News!

REMINDER: READING IS AN INVESTMENT LOGS ARE DUE MARCH 9, 2017. TURN YOURS IN TO MRS. B. AS SOON AS YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR READING! 
*Extra reading logs are available in the library.*


As the new year begins, we are quite busy in the library! All of our students are participating in Vermont's Red Clover book program. We continue to book share the Red Clover books with The Blue Whale written by Jenni Desmond. Sullie and Spencer drew an amazing blue whale for our research board!

Agent IIM has visited the library and is helping us to learn seven steps in the research process. We have used our literary nonfiction book, The Blue Whale, to help us in our research! Students in second grade are also creating their blue whales in art class! The question we are researching is: "If you see a whale, how would you know it is a blue whale?"

We have used a variety of sources to gather our facts. We are now organizing them by sorting the facts into categories. We learned how to use PebbleGo. You can access this database from home if you go to our library website on the Porters Point School Teachers Pages.



In other library news, our second graders continue to attempt to build the longest cantilever at our library design challenge. Andrew currently holds the record with a 33 inch cantilever!


 We also continue to add new books to our collection. Here are some of our favorites!

Finally, we continue to read and share!






We hope to see you visiting our space when you are in the building. We have a great center of learning at the PPS library!
