Book of the Month

Book of the Month

Has your child come home and shared the title of the Book of the Month with you?  Are you aware that this book is helping us to build a learning community in our school?  You might be surprised to learn that sharing one story every month helps to unite our school community.  One book providing a common experience to discuss sends a message to the entire population of a school and unites it.  What better topic to discuss than a children's book shared in class?  Children discuss it in school with their teachers and classmates and then they can also share their conversations with their families.

At Medeiros, we select a new book every month.  The topics and "gentle messages" are wide and varied.  They may reflect something happening at school, or in current events.  Sometimes, we will celebrate a person or event, or we may discuss community values or share a fun book simply for the joy of reading. All of the books are intended to highlight something special academically and bring joy to our lives.
