Soon April showers will bring May flowers. Grab a good book and a blanket and doing some outdoor reading.
Today is a very special day for reading. Each year on March 2nd, we honor Dr. Seuss's birthday by celebrating reading! Schools all across the country participate in an event called Read Across America. We call it Read Across Mathewson. We had assemblies, guest readers, and special reading events and activities happening all over the school all day long. In the library, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Dr. Feser, our superintendent, and two Firefighters from the Milford Fire Department. Thank you for coming to read to us!
What did you read?
RAISE YOUR HAND if you are as excited as I am about the announcement that there is an 8th Harry Potter book being released this summer!! Growing up, they were my absolute favorite, so I cannot wait for July 31st!!
Swing by the library to look at the display on Black History Month. Check out a book or read the blurbs about famous people throughout history!
I hope everyone had a restful winter break. For the rest of the year, Kindergartners will be allowed to bring two books home. Let's make 2016 a great year!
Congratulations to Gavin for winning the 2015-2016 book monster contest. We are happy to have Mike Wazowski in the Mathewson library media center!
There is a new page on the media center site all about the Hour of Code. If look to the left and click on Hour of Code, you can chose from five different coding games to try: Frozen, Angry Birds, Star Wars, Flappy Bird, and Minecraft. Have fun learning to code!
The 4th graders have written book reviews on their favorite book during library class. Since they are becoming so tech-savvy, students then created QR codes out of their book reviews. QR stands for "quick response," and it is a code you can scan with a smartphone or tablet using a QR reader app. Since students brought their QR codes home, you can scan your son/daughter's QR code to read their book review!
