Library Lessons

Lessons in August/September:

Grades 2-5 will review how the library is organized both in  person and online.  They will sharpen their “finding skills” for books and online resources. We will explore the “how-to” of eBooks and read them independently.  We will also go over basics for computers, chromebooks, google suite for education, and CLEVER.  Other available subscription resources will be introduced as time allows.

Grades K & 1 experience a weekly story time. Students will learn how to take care of books, how to choose a “just right” book, and begin participating in grade-appropriate STEAM centers.  (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math).

Kindergarten Special Note:  Students will not be checking out books independently until the end of the first 9 weeks. Each class gets a basket of 25 library books to share in the classroom for the week until individual checkouts begin. 

*Kindergarten students are not allowed to take library books home. (Why? -Too many lose them before you, the parent, ever know they have them!)

**If you’d like to check out books with your kindergartner for home use, you may! You, the parent, may come in with or without your child during the library’s open morning time from 7:15-7:45 a.m. to check out up to 2 books. Books can be kept for 2 weeks at a time. Replacement fees are required for lost/damaged books. (See Library Policy page for details.)
