LP Library News from Mrs. Russell
This week in the library all classes are reading the final nomination for the California Young Reader Medal (CYRM), It’s An Orange Aardvark by Michael Hall for the Primary Category. The 4th and 5th graders are reading the last chapters of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library. Official ballots are being filled out and every vote counts. It has been great hearing the students share their strong opinions on the books. We have had wonderful discussions on style, text, art work and plot. The CYRM winners for the state will be announced next month. Have a wonderful Spring Break. It is a perfect time for reading!
Bookmark Winners announced.
Congratulations to all the participants - it was a very close competition! The judges had a tough time choosing the winning entries, but in the end they went with the ones that moved them the most in terms of reading and overall creativity. This year's winners are: TK/Kindergarten: Blake; 1st Gr: Molly; 2nd Gr: Rachel; 3rd Gr: Kate; 4th Gr: Emma; 5th Gr: Maggie. Each week after spring break a different winning bookmark will be handed out to all LP students during their library time.
Information About CYRM
The California Young Reader Medal (CYRM) program encourages recreational reading of popular literature among the young people of our state. Since its inception in 1974, millions of California children have nominated, read, and voted for the winners of the California Young Reader Medal.
CYRM is supported by the California Reading Association, the California Association of Teachers of English, California Library Association, and the California School Library Association.
Young people recommend the titles of their favorite books for nomination, or teachers and librarians note repeatedly read or requested titles, and these are submitted to the California Young Reader Medal Committee. Members of the committee read the suggested books, discuss their merits and appeal to children, and then decide upon a well-balanced list of nominees.
To be considered for nomination, a book must be an original work of fiction published within the last four years by a living author. Recommendations for nomination are due each year by April 1 for consideration as a nominee the following year. It is a two-year cycle from the time of nomination by students to the presentation of the California Young Reader medal to the winning authors and illustrators.
