Students at ASD participated in the many events that took place in the library throughout the week. The bookmark contest focusing on the Book Week theme, “We Are Children of Books” encouraged students to design their own bookmarks and enter them into the contest. Winners from each grade level will have their bookmarks printed and passed out in the library over the coming weeks.
Students raced to the library every morning to read a few lines (snippets) from popular books that were posted in the library. Students from all grade levels entered a draw by writing their guess as to the title of the book the snippet came from.
Another popular event of the week was the “Who Am I?” poster contest. Pictures of famous characters from children’s books were posted on the library wall. Students were asked to identify the characters by name and to submit the complete list to the library for the chance to win a book of their choice.
Throughout the week the focus remained on the joy of reading. The many events encouraged students to explore books they may have previously been unfamiliar with. It was a fun filled Read Week!
Taking the theme of We Are Children of Books to another level, all of the students in the elementary, more than 1,000, had their picture taken and added to our wall display in the library.
