Mrs. Jessie Moore

A "flatlander" transplanted to the Green Mountains, I made Vermont my home in 2012 and joined the WES faculty in 2015. 

I have the privilege of co-teaching 5th grade Humanities every day, in addition to my having preK-2 classes, computer science electives, and librarian and educational technology responsibilities. 

Thanks for visiting my page; check out my blog for updates on what's going on in the WES Library.

  • Research at the Ainsworth Public Library

    Posted by Jessica Moore on 11/15/2019

    5th graders are researching their Capstone topics, and we visited the Ainsworth Public Library this week to see their offerings. Students are encouraged to visit again and take home books with their library cards, for either research or simply for pleasure. Those who don't already have library cards can get one for free! Check out their website at https://ainsworthpubliclibrary.org/ for more information and an application.

  • New Audiobooks!

    Posted by Jessica Moore on 10/3/2019

    There's a new video tutorial up showing how 4th and 5th graders can listen to library audiobooks! This is the first year audiobooks are available through the catalog, and they can be accessed from any internet-connected device through Destiny Quest, our kid-friendly library catalog. Here's the link to learn how to do it.

  • When does my kid have library??

    Posted by Jessica Moore on 9/20/2019

    If you're wondering, "When does my kid have library, again?", you're in good company. Here's a list of library days. I try to include the due date in the back of the book as much as possible, too. Students may also request to keep their books an extra week in order to finish them. Happy reading! 

     

    Monday: Ms. Kauffman's homeroom

    Tuesday: Ms. Farr's preK, Mrs. Locarno's homeroom, both 3rd grade homerooms. 

    Wednesday: Mrs. Segit's kindergarten and Mrs. Henry's homeroom

    Thursday: Mrs. MacCormack's preK and both 4th grade homerooms

    Friday: Ms. Flinn's kindergarten, Mrs. Ledwidge's homeroom, and Mrs. Perry's homeroom

  • Dorothy's Books

    Posted by Jessica Moore on 9/3/2019

    Today, fifth graders received a challenge: Read 25 books this year, and get invited to a pizza party. If you're looking for some ideas as you create your list of 25 books, check out this year's Dorothy's Books, a curated collection of the best middle-grade literature published recently. The library has many titles that you can borrow; look for the Dorothy's books sticker or ask me for help. 

     

    As you read Dorothy's Books, you can tune into VPR for their podcast for kids, Dorothy's List. There, host Amy Noyes talks with students around Vermont as they read Dorothy's Books.
