Last week was only our second full week back in school, and we continued our review on library rules and how to become better readers. I had so many students express their excitement about the new books in the library, and many even volunteered to help me organize them!
Here is an update on the learning taking place in the library!
Kindergarten- The students and I read Lola at the Library by Anna McQuinn and talked about some similarities between our school library and the public library. We learned that they both have story time and use special machines to check out books! Lola kept her library books in a safe place, so we brainstormed some book care rules to help us enjoy our books (keeping our books away from food, not bringing books into the rain, etc.)
Students were also introduced to Tumblebooks, where they can watch animated, talking picture books online!
First, Second, and Third Grade- Students were split into teams and participated in a library jeopardy game. They had to work together to answer questions about our library rules and our school's core values. They did an amazing job showing teamwork, solving problems, and cheering the other teams on.
We also reviewed how to use a shelf marker to keep our growing collection of books neat, tidy, and easy to find!
