I would like us to revisit Biblionasium today and work on our "Finished Books" bookshelf. Here is our learning target:

  • I can search Biblionasium for all Maine Student Book Award books that I have read or listened to and add them to my "Finished Books" shelf.

We have something to Chick-a-dee-dee about!

Today our K-3 students will hear their first Chickadee Award read aloud. Over the next two week, WCS K-3 students will participate in this state-wide picture book award program. Every day a special guest reader will read one of the 10 Chickadee books. The goal of this program is for students to develop an appreciation of outstanding writing and illustration in current children's picture books. After reflection, students will vote for their favorite book! I hope they enjoy each new book they hear!
