PhilosophyThe Blackwell Library is an important educational resource for teachers and students. It is a learning and information center. Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Buzek provide experiences to stimulate reading and develop in students a desire to read, while also providing a teaching/learning environment for the classrooms.
The Blackwell Library is much more than books. It is a learning center with a full range of literature and technology resources used to support student achievement. It’s a place to help students develop a love of reading which they can use to explore the world through their imagination and literature!
We welcome makerspace activities to the Blackwell library. A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school or library for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.
Kindergarten: One book
1st /2nd grade: Two books
3rd-6th grade: Two books and magazines
Students can renew books at any time. Lost books are the responsibility of the student. A fee will be charged if not found.
If students are not sure if a book is “just right” they can use the Five Finger Rule to help them decide.
Too Easy: 0 – 1 fingers
Just Right: 2 – 3 fingers
Too Hard: 4 – 5 fingers
