No password needed, but scroll down the page to the “ELEMENTARY Stream” BUTTON. Once the Stream page launches, scroll down again to the thumbnail pictures of book covers. Browse or search by topic to find books of interest. Many of these books are classics or award winners, meeting the standards of the Junior Library Guild.

If the icon has “READ” it’s independent reading, no read-along. If it says “PLAY” it’s an audio only, no book to follow along. I haven’t found any that are book/audio together. Check EPIC! Tumblebooks, or Capstone for read-alongs.

ACTIVITIES


District Battle of the Books has been cancelled. Librarians will determine if it’s feasible to compete this school year.

Thanks to all of our students who participated. We had a lot of kids competing, and it’s great to see them working together as a team.Well done all!

My goal is always to encourage reading, and to stretch minds by introducing books that students might not otherwise read. A Love of Reading and Lifelong Learning. That’s what it’s all about.


Wyoming Reads Every 1st grade student has chosen one of the six books and will be receiving it before the end of the school year. The event is currently scheduled for May 12, 2020 at the Albany County Public Library,

The Jorgensen Foundation is monitoring closures and safe practices for this event, and if the the celebration cannot be held at the public libraries we’ll figure out the best way to get books to every 1st grader.


Recommended Books

there are so many lists out there for recommendations. GoWYLD provides the Novelist K-8 database to help readers find books of interest. In addition, the Wyoming Library Association compiles lists annually, and the winners for 2020 should be announced soon.

At Slade, Kindergarten-3rd grade students cast their votes for Slade’s favorite book of the 10 nominees. All of the books are read during class and students discuss the elements that make a book worthy to earn an award.


Indian Paintbrush Nominees

Indian Paintbrush Awards the annual Indian Paintbrush books are nominated by students across the state of Wyoming. Students in 4th & 5th grades who read 2 or more of the books may vote for their favorite book in March 2020. The Indian Paintbrush books are purchased annually for the Slade Library.


Soaring Eagle Nominees

Soaring Eagle Awards the annual Soaring Eagle books are nominated by students across the state of Wyoming. Middle school and high school students vote for their favorites.
