Library Catalog Skills

Dear Middle School students,

Now that you have your Chromebooks, we can do some library skills review. We will join our Google classroom and spend some time on the library catalog. Today's learning targets are:

  •  I can do a keyword search in the library catalog. 
  •  I can sort my results by relevance, call number or date.
  •  I can locate useful information in a catalog record such as:
    •  call number 
    • author 
    • title 
    • copyright 
    • summary 
    • availability 
Once we have reviewed the catalog, please complete the form in our Google Classroom.

8th grade goals

Dear 8th graders,
Welcome back! We've talked about books and what we might read this year. I'd liked you to share more about your 8th grade reading goals. Also, please share a more general goal that you have for your 8th grade year. We will use this padlet to share. Since this is public, remember to be respectful and appropriate. Also, correct spelling and capitalization look good too!

Made with Padlet

Welcome Back!

Happy School Year! I'm so excited to open the library doors again! I can't wait to catch up with all of our Woolwich Wildcats and hear about the great books they read this summer. One of my favorite things about summer vacation is that I have more time to read, read, read! Here are some books that I really enjoyed this summer...

Woolwich students work very hard on their reading skills during the school year...it's important to keep reading over the summer so that your hard work isn't lost. Luckily, there are lots of fun programs and recommendations to help you find great summer reading books!
Don't forget...you have access to our ebooks all summer. Check out our Tumblebooks link on this page!

Reading Without Walls

We did it! During the month of May, we focused on reading outside of our "comfort zone." We read books in a different format, or about a character different from us, or about a topic we didn't know anything about. Some of us read in all three of these categories! Congratulations on expanding your reading horizons...

Hi 4th graders,
We have spent the year learning how the library is organized and locating books that we want to read or need for research. Let's review what we know with this game!
