Ferguson-Easley Elementary School Media Center

Beverly McClellan, Media Coordinator

Many of the books in our media center have been shifted to new shelves for the new year. For the third nine weeks many students will focus on checking out books in the five and nine hundreds of our Dewey organized media center.  This gives them chances to learn about math, science, history and biography. We are also reading electronic books in the 500s.

Students also continued to receive The Fayetteville Observer newspaper as a result of that newspaper’s donation to our media center.

Let each one of us resolve to have an exciting Black History Month.  Let us read as much as we can during February to successfully reach our goal and to learn something new about African-American History and/or Black HistoryIt is Twenty-Twenty and in the FEES Media Center books we have plenty.

THE MORE YOU READ,
THE SMARTER YOU WILL BE…

MOST DEFINITELY!

All students were able to select resources to use to learn about Black History.  Displays promoted the various books that we have on this subject.  Students read about the traditions, cultures, and diversity of this celebration during media classes.

They continued learning about the Winter season too.  There were opportunities for students to read both fiction and nonfiction books, to read books from the general collection and the supplementary collection too. When a class read a title together they could help each other out with comprehension.  They could also compare books in a series that were written by the same author.  This made reading more vibrant.

The Donors Choose grant for Kindergarten through Second graders for media made it possible for us to get the opportunity to read the periodical, Times for Kids

This is a wonderful time to celebrate a brand new reading year.  It is our time to decide to resolve to do more reading starting immediately.  This reading resolution is purposeful.  It is necessary.

It is pertinent for each one of us to analyze our own situations and resolve to read more, and more, and more.  We can read Reference books, Fiction, Nonfiction, and Folklore.

Remember that in the FEES Media Center, We have books a PLENTY for the brand new year, Twenty-Twenty
