  3. 3,2,1...Blast Off Read!

    When: 
    9/8/15-1/4/16
    Registration is required.
    Registration Details: 

    Registration begins on September 8. Contact the Children’s Service Desk at 920-832-6187 to register or by filling out this form. You MUST be registered in order to earn any incentives. Students must be in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade to participate.  

     

    1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students are invited to blast off into the reading atmosphere with some of the best books the library has to offer! Students may read to themselves, read to someone else (including pets or stuffed animals), or listen to someone read to them. The goal is to read 12 books during this time period if you’re in 1st grade or 2nd grade and 6 books if you’re in 3rd grade, then write or dictate a book review for each book. Of these books, at least half should be from the library’s booklists. While you may choose books from any of the lists, you should be choosing books written at your reading level. Please be sure to include your full name and phone number on every review. Reviews must be turned in all at the same time. Every review will be read by the children’s librarian.

    Receive an assortment of small incentive prizes, as well as a drawing entry for a special completion prize.  Register and pick-up your reading list at the Children’s Services Desk or online. If you have questions, call Ellen, the school-age librarian, at 920-832-6020 or email ejepson@apl.org.

    Series-ly Worth It

    Meet classic, popular, and new characters found in fiction and non-fiction series! This program includes an introduction to approximately 10 genres, as well as a tour of the Children's Services department. Students will also learn the basics of using Infosoup, our online catalog. Expect this program to last approximately one hour.

    This field trip meets the RL3.3, RL3.9, RL3.10 (OEU 1-4) Common Core Standards.

    Getting library cards and/or checking out books are not a requirement to visit the library for a field trip.

    Library cards may be obtained for your students if desired. This requires that completed library card applications be returned to the library at least 10 days before the visit, accompanied by a class list showing the students’ home addresses. If you choose to check out books, please add 30 minutes to the amount of time you plan to stay at the library.

    All library programs are free, and school-age programs are taught by a professional librarian. Classrooms consisting of more than one grade may attend the program of their choice, and the program will be appropriately modified. Please ask us if you would like help combining this field trip with a stop at another Appleton downtown destination.
