February Goings-On in the F-P Elementary Library
Kindergarteners are feeling the love with some great Splat, Pete the Cat, and Slugs in Love Valentine's Day tales.
First grade is enjoying read-alouds to help recognize the difference between storybooks (fiction) and information books (non fiction). We'll be reading some seasonal snowy book, some funny pigeon books, and some books about losing teeth!
It's Chromebook time for the second graders! Students will have 1:1 Chromebooks from 3rd grade on, so this is a nice head start to get comfortable before the switch from ipads next fall. We're practicing logging in, bookmarking websites, and exploring the resources on the library page.
Third grade has wrapped up the adventures of the three Cyberpigs. We'll be taking a read-aloud break before getting back into digital literacy topics in later March.
Fourth grade is moving into Common Sense Media's Digital Passport. We'll be learning about strong passwords, digital multi-tasking, keeping information safe, cyberbullying, keyword searching, and giving credit to our sources in the next couple of months.
Digital citizenship is the theme of fifth grade library. We've been talking about phishing and protecting our personal information online and will be continuing into the topic of being kind online and cyberbullying. Again, we'll be loosely following Google's Be Internet Awesome curriculum as well as additional online platforms to explore these topics.
