Happy New Year Everyone

Well, winter certainly showed up while we were on break and the snow outdoors is very pretty to look at. I feel confident in saying that we will all stay warm snuggling up with books-a great way to start the New Year! We are all back to school and ready to begin reading again. This month we will start out the New Year with a celebration of World Braille Day that will hopefully result in students and staff reading and talking about books through the winter months. Mrs. Brown has some things up her sleeve for your students that I will reveal over the next several months-so stay posted to your Library News!

 Book Club will be starting out the New Year on January 10th with a wonderful adventure that takes place in a book-this book is titled INKHEART by Cornelia Funke. 
Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life-really to life. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then, imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.  This is an exciting read, and I can not wait to start it with our book clubbers!  Read along with us please-you will enjoy it.

 This month younger students will be reading about winter weather, winter sports, Dr. Martin Luther King, and at the end of the month-Groundhog Day.  We will of course also spend time reading about Louis Braille.  January is the birth month of Louis Braille, who created the Braille Code system of reading that revolutionized the educational outcome for Blind and Visually Impaired readers all over the world.  Happy Birthday Louis!

Wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year filled with good books. As always, please feel free to contact me via email or phone if you have any questions or comments.  I always enjoy talking to families about what their students are reading!



Sincerely,
Mrs. Janell A. Brown
