December Goings-On in the F-P Elementary Library 

Happy Holidays from the library! 

Kindergarteners are heading into the winter season with author Jan Brett. An author study helps students recognize style and characteristics of a particular writer and/or illustrator. Since many of Jan Brett's stories have winter, cold weather, and holiday themes, we'll be enjoying them while learning the difference between storybooks (fiction) and information (non-fiction) books.

First grade is learning about call letters and call numbers and why they're important in the library. We're practicing our abcs and 123s so we'll eventually be able to navigate and find our own books in the library.

Second graders just learned a little about Melville Dewey (did you know he was born in North Adams, New York?) and his system for organizing non fiction books. Next step is learning how to search the library catalog and use call numbers to find a book on the shelf. 

Preparing for research projects coming up later in the year, third grade is getting familiar with the library website and research databases. As December continues, third graders will be moving into digital literacy with online activities such as MediaSmarts and Webonauts. 

Fourth grade is continuing literary genres. We've just got realistic fiction to go and we'll be moving into the non fiction genres of poetry, biography/autobiography, and general non fiction. 

Digital citizenship is the theme of fifth grade library. December moves from online privacy into being cautious online and being aware of phishing, scams, and deceptive tactics that students may come across. Again, we'll be losely following Google's Be Internet Awesome curriculum as well as additional online platforms to explore these topics.
