Reading Growth Incentive

May 7-June 6th (revised!) are the dates for taking the end of year Star Reading Assessment. To be eligible for the end of year reading growth treat you MUST take the end of year assessment. How do you earn the treat? Those students reading at grade level or above *6th grade= 6.9+ *7th grade= 7.9+ *8th grade= 8.9+ AND students who have grown 1 or more grade level during the year (e.g. if a student began the year reading at a 2.3 reading level and finished at a 3.3 or higher). Treats for End of Year Celebration- the survey was overwhelming in the favored options. One I had offered and then students writing in their own. So..... Two Options- you may choose ONE of them after dinner on the dates we celebrate. *A variety of treats will be available- chips, candy, chocolate etc. *A mini-pie bar will be available to create your own

Getting a Library Card

How do I get a Baltimore County Public Library card?

To apply for a Baltimore County Public library card, visit the Circulation or Information Desk at any Baltimore County Public Library branch or any Mobile Library Services bookmobile stop and bring your valid identification showing your current mailing address. If you are 17 years of age or under and do not have valid identification, a parent/guardian must be present to show a valid photo ID and sign a registration form to allow you to get a permanent library card.

Quotes

Plain sticky notes

Sticky note

Imagine an athlete who takes several months off from training. It will take weeks, if not months of training to return to peak performance. The same is true with readers and their reading (Allington, R., 2005 Summer Reading Loss).

Sticky note

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough (Oprah Winfrey).
