Library Happenings for October

Library classes at Stanley, Clarke, and Hadley are participating in Global Read Aloud 2018. The GRA promotes community by connecting children in our town and across the world by sharing diverse books and ideas. During library classes, students have been reading books such as My Heart Fills With Happiness by Monique Grey Smith, Wild Berries by Julie Flett, and A Boy Called Bat by Elana K. Arnold.

Students are also engaging in technology projects related to the stories, which they will be sharing with each other and students in Tottenham (Ontario, Canada). Access to the Native American Children's Literature book list. If you'd like to learn more about books related to GRA, go to https://theglobalreadaloud.com/.
