Holmes School Book of the Month

Holmes School Book of the Month (2018-2019)

The Holmes School Book of the Month is an on-going Interactive Read Aloud activity designed to build and deepen our community connections through conversations relating to high-quality children’s literature.  Each month, all classroom teachers at Holmes School will be reading the same book to their class in a engaging manner focused on high levels of comprehension.  The books we have chosen for this purpose have excellent picture supports which encourage even deeper thinking about the text.  As our children read and discuss these books with their teachers and classmates, we encourage you to have conversations with your children at home.  We will also periodically be discussing these books at our Whole School Meetings.

Each month, look for the most current Holmes School Book of the Month on the bulletin board outside of the main office.  A special “Thank you” to our “in house” bulletin board artist, Mrs. Gretchen Brown!

The books identified for the remainder of the year are listed here: Holmes School Book of the Month List 2018.2019

If you have any questions about the Book of the Month, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher at any time.

February’s Book of the Month

“Verde brings it all together in the end with the connectedness of humans to each other. The clear and concise text is well-matched by Reynolds’ familiar illustrations in which viewers follow an unnamed boy of color (born on page one) on his human journey . . . An age-appropriate and hopeful look at what it means to be a connected human on this planet.”
