North Carolina Children's Book Awards

Every year, students across North Carolina vote from a set of nominees for the best Picture Book and/or the best Junior Book. The votes are counted from our students here at CCES! They have been submitted to the state and I will let you know when we know the final winner from the state. The top vote earner here at CCES was Two Bobbies which received 75 votes out of the total 197 picture book votes. The winner from CCES for junior books was The Willoughbys. All votes for all titles were submitted and will be counted in the final totals. Stay tuned to hear the final winner for the 2010 North Carolina Children's Book Award!

Skyping with the Olympics!

"This was the best thing we have done all year!" is what one student said as they were leaving the media center today. I wish I could take credit for it, but what they had just done was have the opportunity to Skype with the Chief Umpire from the Olympics for Curling!

Rae Kells was kind enough to spend a little over a half hour telling our 3 fifth grade classes about her experiences with curling and with the 2010 Winter Olympics. They had the chance to ask questions, and did they ever! They had so many great questions and we all learned a lot more about curling than we already knew from our research about the different winter Olympic sports and Canada. Questions included what is the weather like in Canada, what kind of shoes do you wear to curl, why is it called curling, is there overtime in curling, and many more. A big thank you to Rae Kells and to Marlo Gaddis in the WSFCS Technology Department for helping set up this great opportunity. The students are still so excited!
