Great News!

As I have said before, we strive for a balance of reading, making, and thinking in our library.  Mrs. Haynes is FABULOUS at collecting data that helps us track many programs in our library.  One area that she continually tracks is our Missouri award reading data.  In the past few years we have seen our circulation and award book reading go down.  As a staff, we have tried to find ways to stop this decline.  The 3rd, 4th and 5th grade teachers continually use strategies and encouragement to help kids start AND finish books, we have implemented a set reading time at the end of our school day for the entire school, and I have been highlighting books and series every time classes come into the library for specials.  So when Mrs. Haynes shared this news with our staff about our Missouri award reading data, we were overjoyed that maybe our decline has come to a halt! Oh, and maybe the intrigue of the ChromeBooks has worn off as well...the opinion of one our 4th grade teachers.
