The students here at Twain read many of the CCBA (Colorado Children’s Book Award) nominees. All students have voted for their favorite easy fiction book and the older students voted for their favorite chapter book. The statewide winners for this year were Arnie the Donut and A Dog’s Life. Here at Twain, the students selected Mrs. McBloom Clean Up Your Classroom and Princess Academy.
The students have been working on various library skills throughout the year, ranging from learning the layout of the library for kindergarten students to learning about the Dewey Decimal System in 5th grade. Many reference materials have been introduced and reinforced including, the Dictionary, Almanac, Encyclopedia, Atlas and some specialized resources. Our aim is to teach our students how to retrieve the information that they need and then how to use it!
We have purchased new materials in both the fiction and non-fiction content areas. We include items that not only support the elementary curriculum but also books that are fun recreational reading for our students and staff.
The Spring Bookfair yielded many wonderful new books for the library and we wish to thank the PTO and parents for this much appreciated windfall!
Our ‘Parent Resource Collection’ is now housed in the Peak and available through Mrs. Christensen and Dr. Wilson. We are currently compiling a list of titles that are available to all parents, staff and community members. Please feel free to browse!
Thanks to all students, staff and parents for your continued support of our Library.
