Talk at home about…exploring!

Explore. This is a word I use all the time. The library is truly a space for exploration of all kinds! Here are some of the things we’ve been exploring this past week.

Ms. Trageser and I are working together to integrate art and literacy with Kindergarteners. This week, thfletcherey used their visual thinking strategies to investigate these two things:

Yes, that is indeed tree bark, along with the book “Fletcher and the Falling Leaves” by Julia Rawlinson. Next week, these students will incorporate what they saw, thought and wondered about it into their artwork with Ms. Trageser.

Red Clover books are being enjoyed by many classes this week. We have been reading Infinity and Me by Kate Hosford, The Fantastic Jungles of Henri Rousseau by Michelle Markel, and Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems.

Students have also found loads of new books to enjoy. “Book huddles” are one of my favorite sights! Exploration, sharing, and conversation happen here!bookhuddle

This week adults also did some exploring of library resources. Librarians teach big people, too! Para Educators used iPads and QR codes to delve into digital resources available to our students and school community.  Check out our “Digital Reference” page to do some exploring of your own!qr
