MVMS LIBRARY HOSTS A BOOK TASTING

Posted February 20 at 2:10pm

Picking a good read is always a matter of taste, but print books engage many more of our senses than e-books on reading devices. You can practically taste a print book!

 

Ask the sixth grade students in Ellen Ferrier and Betsy Corletta’s ELA classes. They worked up an appetite with a five-course Book Tasting at Spicehandler’s Literary Café, in the school library.

 

After browsing through the specials displayed in the library lounge, student-guests moved on to the book dining area, to the sound of soft piano music. Tables set for dinner offered five delectable courses in Fantasy/Supernatural, Realistic Fiction, Science Fiction, Adventure and Historical Fiction.

HELP FOR “SCREENAGERS” AND THEIR FAMILIES: FILM VIEWING MARCH 19

Posted February 19 at 8:01am

We are watching our kids grow up in front of a screen, scrolling through life with ever faster thumbs. As parents, we find ourselves doing the same, and we begin to ask if the rewards outweigh what is being lost.

 

Like it or not, we are living in a new technological land. Our children’s attention spans are ever-shorter, contact with the natural world briefer, and social interactions one level removed from face-to-face. How do we begin to talk about this as families?

 

If you are experiencing friction and frustration about your child’s use of technology, you are not alone, and there is help.

CELEBRATE "WORLD READ ALOUD DAY" WITH YOUR FAMILY

Posted February 1 at 3:51pm

A timeless scene unfolded in the middle school library today in observance of  World Read Aloud Day

A group of eighth graders read aloud to their sixth-grade peers to celebrate reading and storytelling.

Centered around the seven strengths of reading — belonging, curiosity, friendship, kindness, confidence, courage, and hope — this annual global event also advocates for literacy as a human right.

Celebrate at home today. Read a story as a family. The benefits are many.
