Olde Creek is going virtual for grades 2-6 this year!  We have created Google Classrooms for rising grades 2-3* and 4-6**. Use the Google Classroom site to create a Trading Card for your book. Rising Kindergarten and First Graders will use the Trading Card template provided (we will have extra in the library).  Fill out four trading cards to receive an ice-cream reward in September.  Or read and fill out ten trading cards to receive an ice-cream and a beaded bookmark reward!

Library Instruction

The Media Center is open to all students during regular school hours for circulation of materials, independent study, research, recreational reading, and media activities. Kindergarten, First, Second, and Third grade classes meet weekly with Mrs. Smalley. During this time students listen to stories, learn library and research skills, and have time to check out books.  Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth grade classes have time weekly to check out books as scheduled by Mrs. Smalley and the teacher.  All teachers work with Mrs. Smalley to schedule times for special projects requiring the use of library resources.

Battle of the Books

Hey 4th, 5th and 6th Graders! Which class will win the next Olde Creek Battle of the Books?

The battle is a trivia contest.  The more books you read, the more questions you can answer.  The top 3 scorers on the quiz will represent their class in the battle!  Check-off each book below as you read.

 

What is The Battle of the Books? It is a competition between Olde Creek 4th, 5th and 6th grade classes involving 12 books.  Each class will have 3 participating representatives and one alternate representative.  During the battle, questions about the selected books will be asked.  The team that answers the most questions correctly wins the battle for their class!

How can I represent my class? Read as many of the selected books as you can and take the Battle of the Books quiz.  The 3 students scoring the highest on the quiz will represent their class. 

How can I participate if I am not my class rep? Students from each class may be called upon by their class representatives as a “phone-a-friend.”  Even if you are not selected to represent your class, your knowledge of the selected books may help your class.  Each class will create a class name, theme and a class chant.  The chants will be presented by the whole class during the battle.  Also, all students can dress to the theme selected by their class.  

Where can I get the books? Look for the special collection of Battle of the Books titles in the Olde Creek Library.  Check one out today!
