How does Mrs. D decide which books to order? She uses a variety of book reviews, award-winners for the Caldecott and Newbery Awards, titles that support the Common Core at various grade levels, among others. Throughout the school year a list is compiled of teacher requests and student “wish lists” – after all it is important to have a library collection that reflects the interests of it’s patrons.
It seemed only fitting to end the last week of National Library Month with the introduction of our newest books. Students had the chance to check out one new book this past week so as many students as possible had an opportunity to read a new book. When Badger 3-8 testing was taking place in the library this week, Mrs. D brought the library to students on carts and checked out books with her laptop and scanner.
