Green Mountain Library News  

February and March 2012


Welcome to February and March’s news from your Library. So much to do, so many new books to read, definitely not enough time. With some “tweaking” I have added some new Library procedures that are exciting and more beneficial to our GMT readers and to you. Take a moment to check out these teaching resources this month. Thank you for your continued support and patience.

With all the various days off...... Your Library calendar looks like: 

1st/3rd week Library: 

2nd/4th week Library: 
 March 6th & 8th March 13th & 15th 
March 20th & 22nd  March 27th & 29th 
April 10th & 12th  April 17th & 19th 
April 24th & 29th  May 1st & 3rd 
May 8th & 10th  May 15th & 17th 
May 22nd & 24th  May 29th & 31st  


Who Author Focus: With February being Black History month, I will be discussing various black poets and authors. Books have been featured on the shelves and the library “showcase” cart. I will be featuring these choices every week during the Librarian book share.


Non-Fiction Focus:  Our newest library page is all about our Black History and the American Connection, this page will be previewed in library classes 3-8.  Please take a moment to check it out.  I did not use pop-up links with this page..... so, students should beable to view the links in the computer lab for your historical resource links.


Library Skills:


4th and 8th Grades: Research skills are hi-lighted this month using fiction/nonfiction black history books.  This unit is completed and is posted to our Library page under the folder Library Skills. This month’s focus is about what personal narratives can inspire in areas of journaling/diaries/letters .


 KD-3rd Grades: Library target #1, locating the “Just Right Book For Me,” is being modeled and discussed as this month’s focus. This month, your students have been investigating the following literary themes, which have been providing many great giggles and discussions as we compare and contrast these literature picks:


Book Titles:

Literary Skill/Link


Jan Brett's: Valentine's Day & Hedgie adventures (Blast Off) 

Illustrations telling a story

Brett book match questionaire 


Charlie Parker Played Be-Bop 

Poetry and sound 


* combination of 1st and 2nd titles 

Poetry and sound and spring explorations 


Spring Animal stories & seasonal changes 

Fiction vs. Nonfiction 


All Students: Grades KD-6, if you find that you are in need of a quick learning transitional period, why not use your Elmo and let the class practice their skills with one of these learning links: . This would be a perfect opportunity for me to tap into lessons you are beginning or finishing. Please send me an email if you would like to collaborate on an instructional pathfinder for your students to investigate during this month.


If you have an area of focus, or student work, or a great lesson that you would like to have extended into the Library, it only takes a quick moment to share with me. I’m only an email away.
