We Love Books! 
This Valentine's week students will get the opportunity to do a "book tasting" with a huge new batch of books we recently received thanks to the generosity of the HMS PTO. During the "book tasting" students will look through new titles and jot down books that catch their interest. They will be able to place holds and come up with a reading plan. As education leader Penny Kittle says, "The difference between a reader and a non reader is a plan."

During class we will also be doing a book raffle. This is when I book talk a book and then pick a number and the student whose number is chosen gets to check the book out for the next two weeks. So simple and yet the students have been begging to bring the book raffle back. 

In honor of Valentine's Day, we will also have a book love photo booth station where students can take a picture with a favorite title.  Stay tuned for some fabulous book love pictures!

Recently students have been requesting this series. The HMS PTO was able to get us almost all of the titles in this popular fantasy series. Fans of Chris Colfer's Land of Stories series may enjoy these.
