It's the end of the year and I want to thank everyone for all their continued support in advancing literacy at Walt Whitman Elementary. A special thanks goes to Ms Rodriguez and Ms Blakney for all you do.
If you would like to schedule a check out time, please see the schedule attached to the email that led you to this page. There has been some confusion about when is a good time to send students. If you haven't scheduled a time, please go ahead and do so. Scheduling a slot for you ensures your kids have a dedicated time where I can help them find Lexile appropriate books and I am not busy with another class.
If you schedule a check out time and are not bringing the class in for research or story-time, please send no more than three-four students at a time. This will help prevent hallway issues between class and library and during library visits.
If you would like me to deliver a bag of books to your classroom, let me know and I will be happy to select age-appropriate books and bring them to you! If you are researching a specific topic and would like me to pull books for that lesson, just let me know.
The first major book order for the library has been made!!! New books should arrive early 2017.
