Library Science Update

We have a great group of readers at Rohan Woods School!  Students from EC through SK have been reading some winter themed stories, such as Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice and The Hat.  First through Third Grade students are continuing to read the Show Me Reader Award nominees.  Most recently they enjoyed two true stories titled I Love You Just Enough and Elizabeth, Queen of the Seas.  Fourth Graders and Middle School classes are completing assignments to encourage each other to read great books.  They are working on book recommendations and their Top 10 Books lists, both of which they will share with their classes.
