The Library Media DESK focuses and prioritizes the reading and information literacy skills that students need to know and be able to use to help them read and research effectively in all subjects and with a variety of technologies.
Every time you do research, you should cite your sources (this includes pictures). At our school, we use MLA format. Make sure you title your page "Work Cited" (centered) and list your sources in alphabetical order by author's last name. You should also double space your page and use a hanging indent if the citation is more than one line. Use the links below to help you cite your sources correctly:

Pushing Tools for Students
Technology administrators are advised to push these tools to all student accounts to ensure easy access and prevent teachers from being burdened with a litany of related student help requests during distance learning, particularly since the tools are inconspicuous.

We will hold our Newbery club over teams this year. We will meet on the first Friday of every month. At noon! Eat your lunch as we talk! If we end up going back to school on Fridays we will resume our meeting during your lunch period.
I will be adding everyone that signs up for our Newbery club to teams. There will be a form for each book that I have selected for our club. You can fill that out to help you decide if your book is distinguished and worthy of the Newbery! There are some awesome Star Reviewed books on our list. I am hoping that we will be able to have an in person celebration party at the announcement of the Newbery award in January!

For a book to win the 2020 Newbery it must have been written by an American Author and have been published in 2019. The actual Newbery committee is looking for “The most distinguished contribution to American literature for children published by an American publisher in the United States in English during the preceding year”. The list below is of eligible books. The list is by no means comprehensive. We have, or will have all the listed books in the library. As books are released they will be placed on the Newbery shelves. The starred books are books that have the highest potential of showing up with shiny medals, as determined by Mrs. Johnson. To be eligible to vote you will need to read five total books, with four being starred selections.
Read at least four titles from this list. It will be added to, keep an eye on the list in the library.
