Spring has sprung and so has our Parent Teacher Collection. We have added a Language Arts Section (in the hanging blue-handled bags) to the room. You will now find 4 kits dealing with writing. One of the kits is from the Institute for Excellence in Writing and contains four DVDs, along with teacher notes and student handouts. The other 3 kits are called Writing Strands Levels 2, 3 and 4. These three books offer writing exercises, skill building and skill mastery. Keep an eye open for some of our new kits that will be coming out soon.

Looking for something new to read? Do you have a favorite subject or type of book? Do you not know what to read next? We can help. The staff in the Children's Department has created a bunch of booklists to help you find exactly what you are looking for.
You can find the booklists on our website on the Kids page under Booklists on the menu. We have general booklists for everybody and we have divided the booklists by younger readers, older readers, grade level and readalikes.
