What we are up to:
Our year is off to a great start. Third through fifth grade students learned about how and why books get banned and challenged around the world. Fifth grade welcomed a guest speaker from Multnomah County Libraries to enhance their understanding of this important topic.
Kindergarten through second grade students are working on early literacy and comprehension skills while getting to know the library, our system of organizing books, and our puppet friend, Reid.
December 4th, author and illustrator Mike Lawrence, of the Star Scouts series and illustrator of the graphic novel, Muddy Max, will visit Sabin. He will share about the writing and illustrating process for our third through fifth grade classes. Be on the look-out for more information. For those who would like their own copies of his books order forms are available and due November 15th. You can even request a personalized, autographed copy for your student.
One goal this year is to redesign our library space. To make this happen, students will be actively involved in the process. Currently we are in the brainstorming phase and ideas are being accepted in a suggestion box in the library. Fifth grade classes will be measuring the space and all major furniture as a part of math class. Interested in sharing your ideas and helping out with this project?

We are looking for volunteers to help shelve books in the library. Training is provided and it is a fun way to get new book ideas for your own family as well as see what our BIG Sabin community of readers enjoy reading. If interested stop in the library or contact our fantastic library assistant, Kimberley Peterson at email@example.com.
