Welcome to Mrs. Sullivan's Library Web Page!

 MA Book Award List        LIBRARY SCHEDULE


October
We are well into our new year and it's going well. Students at Martin are as excited as always to borrow, read and take quizzes on our great books.

This year PreK students come to the library for a story and activity. They are so much fun!

Also newcomers to the library are the Kindergarten students. They are borrowing books and participating in library activities. 

Looking forward to a great year! So happy to have such a "full house"!


          

           The AR program, Accelerated  Reader, is in full swing and students can take quizzes in the computer lab and on the laptops from the portable cart and the iPads. Many students took quizzes at the public library over the summer and can continue to do that. 

             Everyone is keyboarding!!!

We start keyboarding, typing instruction, in the 1st grade. Admittedly, it's a little rocky at first. They do catch on.  We review in every grade each year.  Students become very good at typing with all their fingers but don't use it for their assignments. Please encourage you child to use the " home row" and both hands for any typing they do at home. They will become very efficient if they use it for all their keyboard work. 
It's going well and we hope to be firmly typing with all fingers in correct position by Dec. 15th!!!! Please encourage your students to use their home row position.

Now we see if the keyboarding pays off. Students will be using their skills to communicate their ideas as they complete the MCAS testing.
