Library Statistics!

posted May 17, 2017, 2:22 PM by Susan Wells WW Library   [ updated May 17, 2017, 2:28 PM ]

Since September WW students and staff have checked out over 23,322 books!  Our library collection is 28,000 titles.  An average 3,000 books are checked out per week and just as many come back and have to be put back on the shelf! That's a lot of READING!  Way to go Wildwood!
Library volunteers loves shelving!

Library Makerspace Centers!

posted May 15, 2017, 7:58 PM by Susan Wells WW Library   [ updated May 15, 2017, 7:59 PM ]

What do libraries and makerspaces have in common? Our students are learning that papercrafting, building with Legos, and bookmark making are all PART of the 700s in the Dewey Decimal system!  Students love exploring new materials and how they relate to the system that helps us organize the library (and all of human knowledge). As we are finishing up our NONFICTION exploration in grades K - 2 is fun to see students completing magnetic poetry (811), exploring language and idioms (400), building with Legos (720), and making bookmarks (740).  Our second graders have even completed the green screen DEWEY challenge in preparation for the DEWEY Throw Down (2nd graders will show 5th graders just how well they know the library and the Dewey Decimal System)!

Battle of the Books 2017 The Semi-final

Battle of the BOOKS 2016The Semi-finals
In this video students in 5th grade take turns talking about which of the 18 books they wish to move forward to the Semi-final round of our A-block Battle of the Books. The guidelines for the discussion included: listening without interrupting so that everyone has a chance to be heard and students were asked to only advocate for their favorite titles to move forward.  Both the 6th and 5th grade had similar round-table discussions. I only videotaped this one after the amazing dialogue and compromise I witnessed during the 6th grade discussion. We hope you will be inspired to read some of our favorite titles!

One happy student here at Wildwood loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid and wants to read them all in his native español!
Today he started on El diario de Greg (Wimpy Kid #1) but he will quickly want #2!  Would you be willing to help our Spanish speakers and donate to the Wildwood PGO so we can purchase the set of 11 for the library?  Click here to donate to the Wildwood PGO. Don't forget to mention it is for our Spanish language collection! 
Check out how many copies we have in English!  So many are checked out we have a big hole on our shelf!
