Earning Extra Stickers On A Library Card.

When a student has 30 sticker on his or her library card the student can choose a prize from Mr. Canning's treasure box! Here is how students can earn stickers.

1. Help Mr. Canning shelve books in the library from 7:30 am to 7:50 am Monday through Thursday in the morning. This option is for grades 4, 5, and 6 only and students must be in the gym to be picked. Mr. Canning picks 6 helpers at a time. 1 sticker per volunteer each morning.

2. Check out a book each time you come to the library with your class. 1 sticker each visit.

3. Make a book review. Grades PK-2 only have to write one sentence why one likes the book and draw a picture that goes with the story. 1 sticker for each review and 5 stickers if I put it in the hallway! 

Grades 3-6 have to write at least a paragraph. Grades 3 to 6 students may also get bonus Reading Counts points, too. 5 stickers for each review and 10 stickers if I put it in the hallway! 

4. Using the catalog to find a book in the library. Turn in the search slip that you wrote the author, title, your name and teacher's name on when you check out. You get 1 sticker for each successful search.



How to print a list of books for your students using the library catalog in your child's lexile.    

Parents, if you have been asking how to get a list of books your child can read than you have come to the right place! Attached is a set of instructions that will allow you to make and print a list of books. You will need to know your child's lexile from the teacher. Also, you can contact Mr. Canning for lexile information. This is a great way to help your child develop as a reader.

                                                                             



Remember that it's important to take good care of your library books!

  • Keep your book safe from water. Keep them in your backpack so that they remain dry.
  • Drawing or coloring in your book makes it look damaged to other users.
  • Try not to tear the pages of your book. If you make a mistake, do not fix it with tape. The library has special tape just for books.
  • Reading a book at the dining table can lead to damage from spilled food. Put your book away until you are done eating.
  • Little dogs love to eat books! Please put your books where your puppies can't reach them.
  • Be sure your hands are clean when you handle your book to keep dirt and smudges out of it.
  • Do read and enjoy your book with family and friends. Read to your grown-ups!
