LIBRARY - Valley View Elementary

Library in... 


This month we'll practice for Battle of the Books and continue to send home sign-up forms and information about BofB. Teams will practice  during 1st  or Lunch  recess every Friday -If they choose.   Anyone can earn coins for reading or listening to BofB books and filling out "Book Blurbs"- you don't have to be on a team.

We will also be enjoying more books  and learning more library skills and literary skills.
We will  talk about our School to School school in Zambia and get to know them a little better and their culture.  This is ongoing all year.
Some students are performing Readers Theaters throughout the year.
