This morning as I was drinking my tea and reading my copy of LMC magazine, I discovered a new social site for young readers, BiblioNasium, that is comparable to GoodReads for adults. BiblioNasium is a social site that supports and extends independent reading activities for K-8 children.It has features designed for children. Kids connect with friends, teachers and parents for exchanging book recommendations. There are virtual rewards, digital reading logs, and safe social connections for kids. I have created an account for Windsor. If you would like to become a member, please email me at email@example.com I will need a parent email address in order to add your child/ren.
Second Grade is having an Ecology Day next Tuesday afternoon. If you have any butter tubs, sour cream tubs, paper towel rolls, or egg cartons between now and Tuesday 4/23 morning. Please drop them in the box in Mrs. Aprati and Mrs. Malinowski's room 111. Thanks so much for your help!!!!
Traditionally, book pages were printed on large sheets of paper, which were then folded, stitched together and cut, and bound together. Most ordinary sized books were printed on both sides, eight pages to a sheet and then folded into eight. This was known as octavo size, from the Latin for eight. Larger book pages were printed with just four pages to a sheet and then folded into four. These books were called quarto size. So the Q originally stood for quarto, from the Latin for four, which were larger, or oversize, books. Thanks to Antony Deter of Morrison Schools for sharing this information
