Fifth Grade students participated in a Global Read Aloud with schools from around the country and world. They read "The Little Prince" in the Library along with these schools. They participated in a Global Wiki which can be seen at www.globalreadaloudproject.wikispaces.com They then drew pictures of how they think the Little Prince traveled from place to place.

R.A. Mitchell 4th Grade students read the book "Frindle" by Andrew Clements along with Kingwood School in New Jersey. These two classes made up their own words and discussed the meaning of these words, the definitions of the words, and the origin of the words. Mitchell students really enjoyed meeting these students from New Jersey.

Each week, the Book of the Week will be displayed in the library. A question from the book will be posted on the monitors above the office and in the lunchroom. Students wishing to answer the question can do so by writing their answer down and placing it in the box beside the display. A name will be chosen each week to receive "Book Fair Bonus Bucks" which can be used at the Book Fair in November.
This week the book is "First Day Jitters" by Julie Danneberg.
