    Library Programs

    Morning Stations

    Beginning at 7:15, 2nd and 3rd graders who arrive early have the chance to participate in morning stations.  We include activities to get students' brains activated while having fun.  We build, create, color, and work together!

    Battle of the Books


    Students in 3rd and 4th grade have the opportunity to participate in a district wide team challenge.  Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to read from a pre-selected list of books.  Working in teams, they will read all the books off the list.  In the Spring, we will hold campus battles, where we ask teams questions about the books on the list.  The Mahanay winning team will go on to compete against other Alief Campuses.

    Book Trailer Club


    Selected students in 4th grade can participate in our book trailer club.  Students select a book that they would like other students to read.  Using iMovie on the iPads, the students will create book trailers  to persuade other students to read their book.  



    Reader's Theater


    Selected students in 2nd grade can participate in our reader's theater club.  Once a week, the students will work with the librarian to make a book or script come to life.  Students work on reading fluency and comprehension.
