Book Fair At Lincoln

Dear Parents and Families:
We’re excited to invite you to our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair. Hosted by our staff, this event is an opportunity for students of all ages to build their home libraries and further their love of reading. As always, all purchases benefit our school. After missing out on many beloved traditions, our fall Book Fair will be a familiar, welcome, and safe event for our students. Here’s what you need to know about the Fair, which will
take place from November 15 to November 18th in the Library at Lincoln.

• Our Book Fair offers a cash-free payment option called eWallet. It’s a convenient digital account that your child can use for shopping at our Fair. Grandparents, friends, and others can contribute, too!

• If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop online at our school’s Virtual Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.

Vocabulary Focus at Lincoln

One of the fundamental building blocks of learning is vocabulary. Having a well-rounded vocabulary plays a very important role in students’ learning to read. Communication skills, language development, and comprehension are linked to a strong vocabulary.

Our staff participated in a Professional development where the teachers played Human Scrabble. During this staff meeting, the teachers were mixed into groups of 8-10 people based on the shape that they were given when they entered the cafeteria. Each group was given a set of scrabble letters with a string attached so they could put the letter around their neck. Everyone in the group had to have a letter to make a word, and the group with the highest points won. The word that won was JUXTAPOSITION. The staff was encouraged to do the Human Scrabble game with their classes as a way to have fun with learning vocabulary.
