New books continue to be displayed, in particular this week new books on sports.
Speaking of new books, if you'd like to get some for your family, the Scholastic order forms will be accepted until this Friday, May 4. This is the last Scholastic order of this school year. Thank you for purchasing from Scholastic. Your orders generate points that can be used to acquire free books for our library and classrooms.
Classes this week are hearing books about the American West, including the California missions, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Dust Bowl and resulting migration to California, and a cowgirl's roundup (of hamsters!). Having recently learned about our American systems of representative government, 5th grade will hear a book about the first American census. The younger grades are hearing about birds, butterflies, and bees. For specific titles, please visit Weekly Readalouds.
Book clubs meet on May 25 (Redwall, for grade 4) and June 1 (Wonder, for grade 5). Thanks to Mr. Warner, who is allowing any of his students who wish to read Wonder to use it for their upcoming book report. Please note, this applies only to Mr. Warner's class.
Tomorrow the statewide winners of the California Young Reader Medal will be announced! I can't wait to see how the results compare with Pennekamp's winners.
