Reminder of projects due
Before winter break, please make sure these major projects are turned in to the library. I understand that especially for younger children, sometimes it's hard to remember to turn in assignments when library is once a week. Full credit may be earned by children who remember, but partial credit is still given to students who turn in late work before the next library session. Children should feel free to stop by if they need another copy of any directions/rubric.
2nd grade: Congratulations on your first book check-outs! Practice "surprise book bags" were sent home. Bags should be returned on the student's scheduled library day. When two bags are returned, students may start independent check-out. Replacement of bags is $10 a bag. Please use the bags to practice proper book care, reading and remembering to return.
4th grade: Creative responses of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe are still being collected. Congrats on finishing the book! What a great adventure!
6th grade: Team shadow puppet shows at the ready! The first week of January will be absolutely the last week for performances.
Middle school: Media literacy notebooks for 8th grade should have advertisement tallies, ad collages and a sample print advertisement, sorry, late work for these cannot be accepted because then you have not fully participated in class. All students from 6th-8th grade should have an example of an MLA citation used in the context of another class' assignment by mid-January. Students in 6th and 7th grade should have their library folders with them in every library class, with ALL NOTES and handouts inside. It is the student's responsibility to be keeping this folder organized and up-to-date.
Thank you for always doing your best!
