Children's Book Week is a time-honored tradition and is dedicated to spreading the word about children's literature and encouraging the joy of reading. Next week at Allen, we will celebrate Children's Book Week in several ways:
We are fortunate to have so many wonderful books in the Allen Library. Although we are a new school of only two years, our collection continues to grow and grow. Students will have the opportunity to guess just how many titles we have. Prizes will be given to the child in each grade level that comes closest to guessing correctly.
Another way we'll be celebrating is that students who don't have overdue books will get to check out an extra book. Kindergarteners will check out two books next week, and all other grade levels will check out three. This is always a very popular activity!
Students will also be designing bookmarks to illustrate their favorite stories. A panel of judges will select one winner from each grade level. Copies of the winning bookmarks will be made available at the Allen Library. The following form that supplied more details was sent home in Thursday folders.
It's going to be a great week of reading!!
