 - Selecting "Just Right" Books - 

Here at Promontory Heights, when our students go book shopping in the library they are supposed to find a “Just Right” or  “Good Fit” book at  their reading level. After they find a suitable book at their reading level they can pick out a choice book to read for fun.

 

Our students utilize the “Five Finger Rule” when looking for books in their reading levels. Students are taught to turn to the first page of the book and read it. For every mistake, they make they put a finger up into the air. Once they reach the bottom of the first page and have all 5 of their fingers in the air it means the book is too hard.  It is not a good fit. If they have two or three fingers in the air, the book is still a good fit, and they have a few new words to learn how to read.


- Library Parent Volunteers - 

We are fortunate to have the assistance of a core team of parents who provide a great service to our school, by helping in the library.   We couldn't have such a successful and busy library without your help!       

 If you would like to help out in the library,   please come and see Mr. Mueller

-Family Accounts-

Typically, the public is welcome into the library but during these challenging times the library will be closed to drop visits. For this school year family account activity is moving online. Starting on Friday, September 25, parents can email me library book orders and requests. I will prepare “take home” bags of books that can be picked up at the end of the school day. Families may have up to 15 books out at one time. Books can be kept for two weeks. Please keep in mind that I cannot guarantee any title, when you submit an order a general list works much better. Once your email is read and the books are collected I will contact you for pick up. I will try my best to complete the orders in good time.
