Library News from Mrs. Hollingsworth

           Each week in library the first and second grade students have had a different Monarch book read to them. After the books were read, the students were able to vote for their favorite book. The votes were tallied and the book Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio received 100 votes.  This Book Just Ate My Dog!  By: Richard Byrne came in second with 47 votes.   The votes have been submitted to the state by various libraries around the state, and the winning book for the state is Gaston by KellyDiPucchio.

           The third grade students have been learning about the different kinds of genres in the library.  Games such as Kahoot! and Bean Bag Genre were played in library to reinforce concepts taught in previous library lessons.  Please encourage your child to read each day.

 

         Welcome Back to another exciting year in the L.R.C.  Students will be visiting the library for a thirty-minute session per week.  During that time, they will be taught library skills, read literature, and borrow books. The children will begin borrowing books on Thursday, September1st and Friday September 2nd, for students at Haines School. Students at Prairie will borrow books on September 8th and 9th.  They will be given a bookmark indicating their library day.  All books are due one week from the day they are checked out.  Books may be renewed, but the student must bring the book to the library in order to do so. Third grade and second grade students will be allowed to check out two books. First grade students will check out one book and as they get into the routine of school, two books will be allowed at a later date.  If a student is absent on their library day, they can return their books when they return to school. If a book or other item is lost, students are charged the cost of replacing the item.  If the item is then found, the money is returned to the student.

Iditarod News

            Mitch Seavey was the winner of the 45th Iditarod. This was his 3rd Iditarod victory. He broke his son’s record for the fastest Iditarod, coming in in 8 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes and 13 seconds.  The previous record, set by Dallas in 2016, was 8 days, 11 hours, 20 min, and 16 seconds.  Mitch received a check for $75,000. Mrs. Mitchell’s class will receive a pencil and eraser for choosing the winning musher.

          Dallas Seavey supported by Miss Welch's class took 2nd place and Nicolas Petit supported by Mrs. Lessner's class was in  3rd place.  They were separated by 5 minutes and 12 seconds. Mrs. Grannum's Joar Leifseth Ulsom came in 4th place.  Jessie Royer took 5th place.  She had all 16 dogs still in the harness when she crossed the finish line.  That is very unusual.

            Students visits the library for a thirty-minute session per week.  During that time, they will be taught library skills, read literature, and borrow books. The children will begin borrowing books on Thursday, September1st and Friday September 2nd, for students at Haines School.

     Please remember to keep library books away from water.  Water always wins and will ruin the book.  It is nearly impossible to repair a book after it was wet and the library will need to charge a replacement fine.

Reading Tips:
1)  Read together every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close.
2) Give everything a name.  This will help build your child's vocabulary by talking about interesting words and objects.
3) Say how much you enjoy reading.
4) Read with fun in your voice.
5) Point out print everywhere. Talk about written words around you.  Ask your child to show you new words as you are on outings.
