Over the winter the 5th grade did a genre study and evaluated one genre in our school collection. They analyzed what we have and didn’t have, and then researched new books that they would recommend I purchase for our school library in their genre. Well, they arrived today and the kids were super excited to actually hold the books in their hands and get to see results from all their hard work!
The new titles look awesome in the library, and students have been checking them out all day! I’m so proud of these students for making an impact on their school and for being thoughtful in their decision-making, which will resonate throughout the library for years to come!
PS. Mrs. Newton came and videotaped 5R receiving their books this morning. Look for it in her newsletter!
