Library centers have been a great addition to our book checkout time this year. We will continue to host 7 centers and the students move to the new center each week.
Listen to Reading Center: This quarter our stories focus on fall and winter. (Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving and the beginning of Winter) Students scan the QR code and listen to the story as a group.
Book Checkout and Comfy Reading Corner: This group is given first access to checking out and extended time to browse the shelves. When finished, they get to read with a "stuffed buddy" in the comfy corner.
Boggle 3 Minute Challenge: In three minutes how many words can you make from this quarter's Boggle letters?
