It's International School Library Month Time (almost)

My students are again participating in the bookmark project for International School Library Month. We are paired again this year with Lam Tin Methodist Primary School in Hong Kong for an exchange of 450 bookmarks. Our other sister school is G. D. Goenka School in New Delhi, India. That match is for 300 bookmarks to be exchanged. We started today with our research on these two countries. The resulting project will be a poster display of the students' research. Look for these in the next few weeks.

This is a project we totally enjoy every year. I encourage all media specialists to get participate in this activity. Registration can be as early as July.

Finished Mockingjay two nights ago. Was disappointed with the epilogue. My teacher friend, who turned me onto the trilogy, and I agree on this. Could it be because it was a "young adult" book Collins decided to tie it all up neatly with a bow? Co-worker said it reminded her of the epilogue in the last Harry Potter. Also we were somewhat disappointed in Gale's post war occupation. However, the choice to shoot Coin....outstanding! Reread those paragraphs several times. Wish I had reread Hunger Games and Catching Fire before beginning Mockingjay. Too long away from a series sometimes muddles up the read.
