Dear 8th graders, 
Now that we are back in the school groove, I want to make sure you remember how to locate resources in our catalog. Today's learning targets are:

  • I can do a keyword search in the library catalog.

  • 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 catalog scavenger hunt form below! Show me what you know!

8th grade goals

Dear 8th graders,
We met on the first day to check out independent reading books. I'd liked you to share more about your 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!

Welcome Back!

Happy September! I'm so excited to open the library doors again! I can't wait to see 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...

Dear 4th graders, You will be wrapping up your Wax Museum projects soon and are responsible for a bibliography. You worked so hard to learn this during your Native American project, and so I know you'll do great. Let's do a quick review of the information you need to include in a bibliography.

  • What do you include for a book bibliography entry?
  • Where do you find the information you need for a book bibliography entry?
  • What do you include for a website bibliography entry?
  • Where do you find the information you need for a website bibliography entry?

Dear 8th graders,
Last visit we edited bibliographies that you had previously submitted to Mrs. Friant. What were some of the mistakes we noticed?

Today we will make a bibliography with the following websites. This will be submitted to Mrs. Friant for a grade...so let's make it perfect!

NASA
Invasive Species

Dear 3rd graders,
You have been busy studying folktales in the library and the classroom. Today we will work on locating a folktale in the library to check out. Here are our learning targets:

  • I can use the library catalog to locate a folktale that interests me.
  • I can locate a specific folktale on the library shelves.
  • I can choose a "just right" folktale to check out and read at home.
