Natasha Lowe and our 1st 4th Grade MakerSpace Play Day!

posted Dec 13, 2018, 5:36 PM by Susan Wells WW Library

We had an amazing day in the library! Natasha Lowe returned to play 31 games made by our talented 4th graders bringing her book The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel to life!  We read the book during 4th grade lunch, Natasha Lowe visited with each 4th grade class and brainstormed with our students, students brought their ideas to life in the MakerSpace and yesterday we played!  Ms. Lowe played all 31 games and gave valuable feedback to each group. Our students felt proud and inspired. To cap it off Ms. Lowe signed a copy of The Power of Poppy Pendle (her 1st book generously donated by our fabulous PGO) for each 4th grader.  A day in the library doesn't get much better! Many thanks to our awesome PGO for making this visit possible!

Maker Mondays are a HIT!

Maker Mondays are a hit! Check out the awesome sewing project we are working on. Students are learning to thread a needle, tie a knot, work with a pattern and look really good holding with their new "book bags!"

Hey friends and welcome back to a new school year!  I am trying to migrate this blog and wildwoodlibrary.org to a new website more inline with our new district and school website.  This includes phasing out this blog :(  Although that makes me sad, I am happy to say that I am experimenting with Twitter.  Check us out @Wildwoodlibrary I just tweeted about our summer reading celebration!

Summer Reading Lists and Project Updates!

posted Jun 12, 2018, 6:50 PM by Susan Wells WW Library   [ updated Jun 13, 2018, 1:54 PM ]

Hello!  Summer is fast approaching and many friends have been asking me for summer reading recommendations! 
This week ALL students will receive a summer reading list featuring fun recommendations.  Our summer reading program is to simply writing down at least one book title per week = 9 books. A summer reading log in paper form accompanies the summer reading list but encourage your student to keep track of the titles they read (some of them) anywhere. Students who turn-in a list of books they read (or some of them) will be invited to our summer reading celebration in September!
Here is a link to our summer reading lists!
Here is a special link to our MCBA Mashup list for students in grades 4th -6th!
Do you still want more lists?  Look no further than our BEST BOOK LISTS button above! 

We are just wrapping up the fun in the library and I want to point you to some of the research projects and book talks are students are proud of.  Not all our student work makes it to the webpage but the following is a good representation of what's been happening in WW Library this Spring!





E and Audiobook News

posted Jun 10, 2018, 7:25 PM by Susan Wells WW Library

I have some good news and some bad news for my Axis 360 readers!  The Massachusetts Commonwealth ebooks Collection has decided to terminate their relationship with Axis 360.  The good news is that most titles will still be available through our new provider of ebooks and audiobooks: Overdrive!
The change over will occur between June 30th and July 1st.  
I am attending a webinar on Wednesday, June 13th to help us get access on July 1st. That way, we can still do our summer reading!
I am very sorry for any inconvenience this will cause.
More soon...
