Flashlight reading is one of our favorite things about the library! It only happens twice a year and it's so much fun! Students check out quickly and then find a place to read quietly. When everyone's ready we turn the lights off and the flashlights and music on!
It was another successful Book Swap! Yesterday at the Book Swap 984 books were swapped for "new" books. The students were so excited to be able to come and choose their books. I want to say a special "thank you" to the Student Council for all of their help in organizing, advertising, and running the Book Swap!
Taylor's sixth annual Vocabulary Parade was held on November 10. This year's parade had a patriotic theme as it was held the day before Veterans Day. Students and staff had a wonderfully creative time dressing up as a vocabulary word. We were honored to have Mrs. Catherine Fowler serve as the Grand Marshal of the parade. Please enjoy viewing this slide show of the event. Look for our staff costume winners: Mrs. Steele (Volume), the Kindergarten team (Patriotic), and Mrs. Laster and Mrs. McKee (Ebony and Ivory)!
If you forgot to bring your Stick With Reading scorecard today, we will accept them through tomorrow, December 13. Don't forget to turn it in to your teacher! I know you want to receive credit for all of the wonderful minutes you have spent reading!
The third annual Taylor Book Swap will be held on Tuesday, December 13. Remember, to participate all you have to do is bring in gently used books that are on your grade level. Your teacher will issue you a coupon with the number of acceptable books that you have brought in. You may bring in your books through Friday, December 9. Then, on Tuesday the 13th you will be able to visit the Book Swap in the library and choose "new to you" books. This is a great way to get some awesome books to read!!
