Each week the students will visit the library to check out books. The books are placed in a large Ziploc to help the students to take care of their library books. The books need to be returned the following week. If the students return their book, they will be able to check out a new book. The students are responsible for any lost or damaged books.

SCHOLASTIC READING COUNTS
Reading Counts is a highly motivating reading activity. After reading a book, students take a computerized quiz that will assess how well they understand the book. When students pass a quiz, they are awarded points based on the number of correct answers and the length and difficulty of the book.
