I am all about celebrating students! Using Twitter makes it possible for me to acknowledge reading achievements and share with families, other librarians and the world.
Follow the QAE Library and see our students who finish a series! With most Tweets, I include the author and/or illustrator, letting them know someone in the world is loving their work!
Connect with us, see all the awesomeness happening at QAE. @qaelibrary. Connect with all of QAE using #QAE

Forgive this late post but it's not too late to make a summer reading plan! Continuing reading throughout the summer can sometimes be a challenge. Below I've listed my favorite and most effective strategies to keep reading alive. I use them all, as I am traveling all summer with a young reader. We were in the car last week and finished listening to Wonder, a relevant story that touches on bullying, friendship, courage - "a mediation of kindness", says author Raquel J. Palacio. Many chapters traveling across I-95 had me in tears. Next download for when we're back in the car, Augie and Me, the story of Wonder continues.
Read aloud together with your child every day. Pick fun spots!
Set a good example! Everyone in the house reads at the same time.
Read the same book your child is reading and discuss it.
Let kids choose what they want to read.
Buy books on tape - Listen to them in the car, or turn off the TV and have the family listen to them together.
Take your children to the library regularly - Check the library calendar for special summer reading activities and events.
Subscribe to children magazines. (Sports Illustrated for Kids, Highlights for Children, or National Geographic World, etc...)
Read the newspaper and current events magazines, - "What do you think about what we just read?"
Make trips a way to encourage reading by reading aloud traffic signs, billboards, notices.
During the last week of school, SPL's librarian, Christine, came to QAE and shared this summer's reading program. Take some time to make a solid plan for summer reading. Let me know how I can support you! BTW - it's ALL about great books!
It was another amazing year - and a total honor and privilege being your child's librarian! I am always connected with a device or two so please feel free to email or text me on how I can support you.
