Thanks to fifth graders for fabulous book suggestions for the library!
Our fifth graders have been blogging about books on my library blog. We use Kidblog.org, where all of our information can only be accessed if you have a user name and password. All fifth graders are eligible to participate in the blog. They have had three posts to respond to thus far. We have discussed the Mass Children's book award nominees in one post. Students have been suggesting titles for the library and making reading recommendations for each other on the other two posts. I have been responding to their suggestions and so has the PTO. Thanks to the fifth graders and the generosity of the PTO we are purchasing many of the titles that they have requested. I have been very impressed with their comments and their ability to communicate with each other and with me via this media.
