Welcome to the OMS Media Center! We celebrated two weeks of Teen Read Week in October (Oct 16-27) with a daily Book Title Unscramble and Guess the Number of Pages in the Jar. We are looking forward to our Fall Book Fair in December (Dec 4-8). Book Fair Flyers will be distributed the week before the fair begins.
The November Reading Challenge is "Read a Historical Fiction Book." This includes war books. Students who are not interested in historical fiction may read any nonfiction book on any topic.
Our Author Birthday Challenge encourages students to read books this month by the following authors:
* Jean Fritz (historical fiction & nonfiction history)
* C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia)
* Lucy Montgomery (The Anne of Green Gables series)
During our instructional time together in October and November, students are learning strategies for finding "Just Right Books." The methods covered include:
* 6th Grade - Goldilocks & Just Right Books
* 7th - If the Book Fits, Read It!
* 8th - Find Books You L.I.K.E.
