Hooray for Reading Week (and our PTO)!
Happy Reading Week everyone! And what better way to kick it off than with lots of new books in the library? Thanks to the very successful Scholastic Book Fair, our wonderful PTO provided me with the funds to order some materials for the library. I'm waiting for our new Playaways to arrive, but right at the end of last week I received two boxes of brand-new books! I didn't waste any time getting them processed and on display so that students can enjoy them this week. All of the books you see in the display below came from this order, and most of the titles were specifically requested by students. We got the newest titles in some of our most popular series, including Magic Tree House, Star Wars, Fly Guy, Judy Moody, Ghosthunters, Twisted Journeys, Elephant and Piggie, and Tiger Moth. Hate that Cat by Sharon Creech and Dav Pikey's The Adventures of Ook and Gluk are finally here, as well as some new graphic novels that I know the students will love!
I have been the teacher-librarian at Ashaway Elementary School since the fall of 1996.
Besides reading (of course!) my hobbies include designing and creating pieces with stained glass, hiking, photography, and Geocaching. Those last three go together especially well! You can read my Geocaching blog by visiting: http://purplecatpaws.wordpress.com/
