Mrs. SammartinoHello Everyone!As we begin our summer break, I want you to keep on reading. I read at least an hour everyday, which makes me perfect for being the librarian. If you read 20 minutes a day, it will keep your brain growing strong for when I see you again next year. One of the reasons I read, is to go on adventures. I want you to go on many adventures outdoors as well as diving into pages. You might even want to give writing your own story a try, I am sure it will be brilliant.ResourcesGrades 1-5Visit website https://justbooksreadaloud.com/ to listen to stories being read aloudVisit website http://www.bibliomania.com/2/-/frameset.html for thousands of e-books, articles, poems, short stories and plays to read.

Welcome to the library!
The key word for library is RESPECT. In our community, we need to treat everyone and everything with RESPECT. That means we encourage our friends, listen to everyone, participate, use materials correctly, and be careful with our library books. Respect should be given and returned between two people.
If you would like to check books out online open library is a resource for you.
Another character trait in library is being responsible. That means taking care of your books and returning them to the library. When you get finished reading your library book at home, please put it back in your backpack. Then it will be with you on your library day. You never know when you could get Cougar Cash for being responsible and prepared with your library books.Please remember the things you can do to protect your library books. Keep them out of the reach of younger siblings and pets. Do not eat or drink near your library book. Be careful when turning the pages. If it is raining, have your library book safely hidden away. If anything does happen to your library book, please send it in and we will see if we can fix it. Thank you so much!If you lose your library book or do not return it, the cost will stay on your account until it is paid in full.Things I Like to DoRead Paint Color Write StoriesTake Adventures Hike Up MountainsMy FavoritesBook: The Giving TreeMovie: Follow That Bird (Big Bird)Ice Cream: Chocolate Fudge BrownieAnimal: HippoSubject: Tie between Reading and Writing
