Genre-palooza!

The end of April and beginning of May was a busy time for book selection.  Fifth grade teachers were eager to bring their students to the library for introductions about a wide variety of book genres.  After receiving a brief instruction on various genres, a refresher on the OPAC, and book talks for some favorite titles, the fifth graders were off and running (well...not actually running in the library) in order to get their hands on some new books.

The genres of particular interest to fifth grade are biographies, historical fiction, and fantasy.  Here are some photos highlighting the book selections of some of our happy readers!

Sports stars are always a popular choice when it comes to biography selection.

A gymnastics enthusiast found a biography on Gabby Douglas!

Mrs. Asquith takes a break to begin reading a biography selection.
The Harry Potter and Kingdom Keepers series are excellent
choices within the fantasy genre.
Rick Riordan books fly off the shelves at Pioneer Middle School!
Once students have completed their books, teachers are providing culminating projects to wrap up learning on each genre.  We will be seeing the fifth grade students again soon for their National Parks research.
