Olympic Wrap-Up and March Events

The entire school did a great job with our Nonfiction Winter Olympics unit. Students learned a lot about the Dewey Decimal System, had fun earning points for their team, and loved cheering on the USA! Click here to see some of their amazing mascots and click here to see the results.

March is going to be busy here at the Charlevoix Elementary School Library. We will have a reading challenge all month and a book fair the first week.

The book fair fundraiser will be in the library March 3-6 before, during, and after school and during conferences. It will be run by McLean & Eakin Booksellers. Online and in-store purchases can benefit the school library as well, just mention Charlevoix Elementary School. Here are some of the books that will be available.

The March Into Reading challenge will have a Shoot the Moon theme. Students are encouraged to read 20 pages a day. There will be a calendar to earn bonus pages and to keep track of how many pages read. Third through six grade students can also use the form above to submit pages.

Go USA! Go Charlevoix!

Students in grades kindergarten through sixth are learning about the Dewey Decimal System through a Nonfiction Winter Olympic unit. Last week classes reviewed the different Olympic sports and nonfiction categories. This week students brainstormed all the connections between the Winter Olympics and Dewey Decimal System. Next week everyone will use iPads to answer questions about nonfiction. Classes are also representing different countries from around the world and competing for point. Go Team!
