In our library at Hill Field Elementary we strive to create an atmosphere where students feel empowered to become independendent, effective information seekers. We support curriculum in order to promote lifelong learners who love reading for both information and pleasure.
Students have the opportunity to earn lanyards and buttons for each book battle book they read. To earn a button, the student needs to read a book from the Book Battles list from their grade (grades 3-6 only). When the book is read, they should fill out the Book Battles form located by the student i-pads. When they have successfully filled out their form, Mrs. Ondricek will give them a button to match the book cover and a lanyard to pin it to. Get reading and earn those buttons!
Book Battles Club is coming soon! Hill Field Elementary will be hosting a book battles club starting in January. This club is open to any student in grades 3-6 who has read at least 3 battle books and earned the pin for those books. The cost for participating is $5 which can be paid in the school office. The club will meet every Friday from 1:30-2:30, starting on January 20th and run until March 3, 2023. During the meetings, we will play games, have treats, practice book battles, and get ready for the competitions. The winning teams from our school (one team from each grade) will get to participate in the District Book Battles at Sunburst Elementary on March 24, 2023. Interested students have been given a sign-up sheet which is due back to Mrs. Ondricek by Jan. 13 (along with reading the 3 books and paying the $5 fee.)
December in the Library:
During the month of December, we will be doing a "Christmas Kindness Challenge" in the library. Each day students will have a kindness challenge that they can complete around the school. We will also be reading Christmas books about kindness.
Grades 5-6 will have the opportunity to create a book talk using the Flip Grid app in our new "studio" in the library. Students can sign up for a time on Fridays to come and create their book talk. Book talk QR codes will then be placed around the library for students interested in finding a new book from their peers' book talks!
