Mrs. Glikman - Library

By in , , , ,

Thank you for remembering the library when celebrating a simcha or looking for a meaningful tribute.  I just received 21 additional books (half of them award winners) that look forward to being added to our library shelves.  I am already planning for our Spring book fair which will be held the week of May 5th-9th.  If you have some recommendations of titles you’d like to see; please let me know.  Once again, our independent local book seller, Book People will be stocking the fair and returning 20% to the school.  The 4th graders have been introduced to some of the 2014-2015 Bluebonnet nominees and are going to act as ambassadors and book reviewers to encourage more of our 3rd to 6th grade students to participate in the program.  The month of March we started by saluting Dr. Seuss across the grades and also read some of the books which have received the Theodore Seuss Geisel seal.  We read everything from Cat in the Hat to the Butter Battle Book.  I had the opportunity to have interesting discussions with the 3rd to 5th graders how Dr. Seuss changed his style from being primarily entertaining to having a very strong social conscience.  The Lorax is obviously his statement about the environment and the Butter Battle Book lets us know his feelings about war.  With the primary grades we focused on the fun of language to be found in his books.
