It is Read Across America week at Sippican School, and classrooms are selecting favorite authors to celebrate. We will be enjoying some fun Dr. Seuss stories in most library classes, along with using Cat Cam and Seuss Color on the iPads. Grades 3 and 4 will get to search Seussville for information about Dr. Seuss. Grade 5 is going to have our first ever Skype visit with an author – Chris Grabenstein! We can’t wait.
We also have a ton of new books that are making their way out to all of our readers. Check out our new book display!
Our annual reading challenge has arrived! Beginning tomorrow, January 8, Sippican School will be participating in a “Reading Without Walls” reading challenge. All students, families, and staff are invited to read:
- Books about characters that don’t look or live like you
- Books about topics that you don’t know much about
- Books in a format that you don’t usually read for fun (graphic novels, a book in verse, a chapter book, poetry, etc.)
Every time you complete a challenge in one of these categories you can turn in a reading slip to the library! We’ll display them on the bulletin board just outside of the library. Which challenge will you accept first? I can’t wait to hear about it!
