How to choose a “Good Fit” book

During library lessons,  classes have been shown a  great strategy for selecting a chapter book that will be a “Good Fit” for them.

It is called “The Five Finger Test” and we will be encouraging students to use this strategy when selecting a book to borrow.

I thought it might be helpful to share this with parents also.

Borrowing

Don’t forget to bring your Library Bag ( with your name on it ) to your library lesson each week.

Students are not allowed to borrow without one as it helps to keep library books protected.

Library bags are for sale at the school Uniform Shop but any protective bag is allowed.

 

Just a reminder that the loan period is 2 weeks but students are encouraged to return books as soon as they are finished reading them.

 

Please come and talk to any of the library staff if you have any questions or need assistance……we’re here to help!

Can you believe we are in Week 7 already?

We would really appreciate all library books  being returned this week. This will enable us to stocktake, tidy and shelve in preparation for next year.

There will be no more borrowing  this year. Prep to Year 6 will be able to return their books during library lessons this week as usual but will not be able to borrow.

Please let us know if you are unable to find your library books or textbooks.

If you have lost any books, it would be greatly appreciated if you could pay the cost of replacement( as indicated on the Overdue Notice) as soon as possible to the Uniform Shop and then bring the receipt to the library. We will then clear your overdue notice from the system. If the book turns up within the next six months, we will refund you the money.

We would really appreciate your assistance.

Week 6 in the Library

Can you believe it’s Week 6 already?

Just a reminder for Prep-Year 6 classes that this will be your last week for borrowing.

All books need to be returned to the library in Week 7. This is so we can have all books and library equipment accounted for and back in its correct place, ready for you to use in 2018.

      

Thanks for your help!
