November in the Elementary Library
Greetings from the elementary library!
Kindergarteners have been enjoying library stories and have been learning about how to use the library. We'll be reading seasonal stories about the autumn season and the holidays that go with it.
1st grade has been reviewing basic library skills, including parts of a book, sections of the library, author/illustrator, book care, and how to find a "just right" book. We'll be learning more about which books are fiction and which are non fiction as we move into November, as well as learning more about how the library is organized by abc and 123.
2nd grade is embarking on more advanced library skills as we head into the later fall season. They will be introduced to the Dewey Decimal System and will learn to search for books using the online catalog. As winter approaches, they should be able to find books on thier own in our library.
3rd and 4th grades are reviewing the OPAC (online public acces catalog) and practicing how to use call numbers and letters to find the book they're looking for. 3rd grade will be moving into exploring our online databases and 4th grade will be learning about literary genres.
5th grade has started off the Be Internet Awesome curriculum by Google. We've been experimenting with Pear Deck and discussing what information we should keep private online.
