Summer vacation is here but do not take a break from reading. Think of all the fun places to travel to with your imagination! SPSL has a collection of eBooks that are available 24/7 all summer long.

Take a Tour of the World

The SPSL third graders are great researchers. Each third grader chose a country to research. Some students chose the country where they were born. Some chose the country where their parents were born. And some chose a country because it sounded cool or their name was part of the country’s name. Whatever their reason, they researched like pros and learned some great information. They will create a Google Slideshow to share their research with their classmates and families. One morning we had a parent volunteer during research time. The students in 3C shared facts about the country they studied (without their notes) with her!
The 2017-2018 school year will be my 28th year as the Library Media Specialist at SPSL. I hold a Master's degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Educational Media and English Language Learning.
