New Market Library Program
The New Market Elementary School library program is an integral part of the school curriculum. Kindergarten-5th grade students are rotated through library classes on a 3 day rotation. During class, students participate in story time, literature response activities, lessons geared toward library skills and research, and self-selected reading. They also learn to select, locate, and care for the books they are checking out. Students in grades 3-5 learn to use the library's computerized search program to locate books that will support classroom lessons or simply provide for their own reading enjoyment. Kindergarten and first grade students become accustomed to the library's layout and procedures as they experience both the excitement and responsibility associated with choosing, borrowing, and returning their own library books. This year, all students will participate in technology lessons during part of their library time.
Our library participates in the collection of box top labels, labels for education and Tyson A+ labels for the purpose of purchasing new books for the library. When your child turns in labels, their name is recorded and once the new books are purchased, their name will be added to a book plate placed inside each new book recognizing them for their contribution toward the purchase of the new book for the library.
Goal for 2015-2016 is $1,300.00
Thanks for your support!
Keep collecting those labels!
