Twenty-five students and the two co-sponsors attended this year’s first meeting. New members were welcomed and given an overview of our club. Mrs. Bullington introduced the books being discussed at our September meeting (Hold Still and Angry Management) and students then shared books they enjoyed reading over the summer. Finally, members were given the opportunity to check out books from this year’s first shipment as well as books for next month’s meeting.
American Revolution Scavenger Hunt Mrs. Atkins, Mrs. Bullington, and Mrs. Roberts (library intern) collaborated to modify an American Revolution Scavenger Hunt Mrs. Atkins had received in a summer graduate course. Questions focused on SC U.S. History standards. Students had to use both print and online library resources to complete their Scavenger Hunt.
Literature Circles Mrs. Bullington and Mrs. DeLac collaborated the first week of school to create literature circles using library sets of popular YA titles. Students listened to six booktalks and chose the three titles that most interested them. Lit circles were created from the choices and students then read and discussed their assigned novel with their group. Students were excited about reading these novels and several came to the library to check out the second book in the series they had begun in their literature circle.</li></ul> <br />Instructional Days<br />Instructional Days13# Days Library Open13<br />Use of Physical Space<br />Student Visits<br />Independent798With a class2403Totals3201<br />Class Visits to Library<br />English24Business Ed1Fine ArtsForeign Language2GuidanceHome ArtsMath3Science1Social Studies8Totals39<br />Class Visits to the Computer Rooms<br />English9Business EdFine ArtsForeign Language7Home ArtsGuidanceMath2Science8Social Studies24Sp.
