Tina Poindexter, LMS Grayson County Middle 2011/2012 Kentucky Bluegrass Award Nominees
What is the KBA? Each year about 10 books for grades 6-8 are nominated by Teachers and Library Media Specialists across the state. The selected books are chosen carefully to ensure a wide variety of topics and genres to appeal to middle school students. Students at each school vote for their favorites and the results are sent to the Kentucky Reading Association by April 1 st. The state-wide winner is then chosen.
Why should students participate? The KBA promotes reading. Students are exposed to various genres. Students use critical thinking skills to assess the books. Students can give feedback and opinions.
Have you ever told a lie? And another? And another? And another…to cover the first lie?
Author Video Liar, Liar: The Theory, Practice, and Destructive Properties of Deception by Gary Paulsen
Where can I find these books in the Library Media Center? The books are displayed at the library entrance. We have purchased 5 or more copies of each book. We do have Playaways for some of the books. Most books have a waiting list so put the ones you want on “Hold.” All of the books have a spine label like the picture below with 2011/2012.
