Update from Our Librarian
We've been having a blast in the Library during the last few months! The library spaces have been packed with kids checking out new and exciting books, and library instruction (both in the library space and in classrooms) has being going really well! The younger grades (K-2) are dipping their toes into the digital world, using the Chromebooks to practice logging in, typing, and even to do some basic coding! We’ve also made sure to keep our literature discussions going, focusing in on fairy tales - both traditional and “fractured” - and informational texts. The older grades (3-5) have also been spending time on the Chromebooks exploring our online databases to do research, making presentations using Google software, and continuing their coding experiences. In many classes, we’ve also had a chance to talk about ways of selecting books for free-reading time, and about different kinds of poetry!
