Who Author Focus: With Black History month just coming to an end, I will continue to share book hooks with grades 4-8. 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:  Irish Folk Tales 

Library Skills:


4th and 8th Grades: Black History unit was completed and is posted to our Library page. This month’s focus is all about Folk Tales/Legends vs. Fantasy Fiction and Black History Voices (Journals/Biographies) .


 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:

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.
