It is finally time for the students to show what they know! We are taking our Library Orientation Assessment on BYOA this week. I think the students are going to do a fantastic job of knowing where all the books and important areas are in the Library Media Center. I am really proud of our kiddos and all they learn each day!
Next week we will be sharing a Thanksgiving story in class.
Our BYOA Assessment over the Map of the Library Media Center is scheduled for next week. Although we have studied the important areas for four weeks, it may be helpful for you to study this map if you get the chance. Remember, 4th Grade only needs to know the location of the books, 5th Grade will be responsible for the location of the books as well as the New Book Tables, the Computer Work Stations, and the Student Tables, and 6th Grade will be responsible for knowing all of the Map locations.

Look at all of the books we were able to buy in addition to the books we took directly from our Fall Book Fair! (You can see those books in our post from September 21st of this year.) The students are so excited to check them out!
We were also able to buy a new carpet for the library with our Bonus Dollars we earned from our Book Fair. I am so proud of our Intermediate families for supporting our Library Media Center.
This week we are discussing the Mark Twain Award Nominees for 2015-2016. There are twelve books that have been nominated. (See below for the complete list.)
Students who have read four or more of the books nominated may vote for their favorite book. I will then tally the votes and send them to (MASL) Missouri Association of School Libraries so that the votes can be included in the final vote for the 2016 Mark Twain Award Winner!
The voting sheets are available on the front desk as the students enter the Library Media Center and can be completed at any time.
