The Little Red Pen, written by sisters Susan Stevens Crummel and Janet Stevens, was the winning Arkansas Diamond Book this year at Leverett Elementary!
A very close 2nd place was Wiener Wolf, by Jeff Crosby.
All students in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade get to vote on their favorite Arkansas Diamond Book this week! We’ve been preparing for this all year and the week to vote is finally here. Our votes will go with all the other students’ votes from across the state and in May the state winner will be announced.
So happy for our 5th grade Vellios students. They were able to attend a visiting author visit today at the public library. SOOOO proud of Chloe, who earned a “$20 Bookmark” for knowing about the Great Depression! 2 others earned a “bookmark” for singing! What a wonderful presenter our 3-5th grades enjoyed today. 3rd and 4th saw him through LiveStream while he was at McNair in person.
Our primary age students have now learned about our print copy of Highlights AND the online Highlights for Kids magazine. The online format is free anytime. You can get this from home by clicking on:

At one point today I looked up to realize we had a LOT going on in our library, and I was so proud of the children, all of them, for using the library for so many purposes and with so many people at one time. I stopped to take a few photos and share what we do here.
And I failed to snap a picture of the kindergarten class that was here using the Library Computer Lab. I also didn’t get a picture of the 2nd graders that were here in small groups doing their own classroom research. IT WAS BUSY! AND I LOVED IT!
Dr. Seuss’ birthday is March 2nd. Leverett Library has so many Seuss books, that they fill a whole shelf, all by themselves! If you don’t know where they are in the library, please ask us! We would love for you to enjoy them!

Leverett students this week and last have taken a virtual field trip to visit the penguins in Orlando! We’ve researched a bit on these amazing birds too. If you’d like to visit the penguins, click on the link below. Be aware there are 3 different “lenses” you can look through: above groud, shallow water, and deep water. The are beautiful swimmers and divers!
Well, as we all know by now, the winter weather has not gone away. We are home for our 9th snow day of the year today. I was hoping Punxsatawney Phil might help us out a bit, but he in fact, saw his shadow. 6 more weeks of winter weather!!!
