Media Center: Primary Campus
Let the reading fun begin!
Our monthly birthday book club celebrations will continue this year. We celebrate at the end of each month with new book dedications. The parties are a "win-win" with our students having so much fun choosing new books for our media center. Check the Galleries for your child's picture holding his or her new birthday book!
We host many author and illustrator visits at Jackson Primary. Tammy Bronson, author/illustrator of Tiny Snail, Polliwog, and Sea Horse Run paid us a visit. (check Gallery 1 for pics) Diane Shore visited on Jan. 24th during Read-A-Thon with Bus-A-Saurus Bop. Shana Corey, author of Here Come the Girl Scouts visited on March 12th, which was the Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary. Fancy Nancy's author, Jane O'Connor, is coming May 4th!!!!
We are learning how to use the library, while focusing on literacy skills and IB lessons. We learn about tall tales, fairy tales, and folktales. In the process, we increase our knowledge of dictionaries, almanacs, atlases, and encyclopedias, and read all those Georgia Book Award nominees! We'll also enjoy Read-A-Thon and Scholastic Book Fair events (gallery 4).
We use the computer lab for AR quizzing, STARFall, BrainPop, First in Math, and many other fun sites. We also have fun with our Promethean board, watching books come alive with Tumble Books and other e-book sites.
The main objective of the W.T. Jackson Primary library media program is to instill a love of reading in each child, teaching information literacy skills which lead to lifelong, independent learning. Students visit the media center for Accelerated Reader and other instructional tech. lab use, read-alouds, literature promotion, library skills instruction, research projects, and book selection.
I really enjoy your little ones and we are having a fabulous year!
