It’s hard to believe that September has already flown by! Mrs. Huestis has been busy getting new library books on the shelves, getting to know new students, and teaching new skills. Students have been busy reading, reading, reading, and either learning new skills or building upon those they already know. Here are some K-4 highlights from our first few weeks.
In addition to practicing our school-wide expectations in our library space, K-2 students have been working on the following standard. As you can see, with each grade, new skills build upon those that came before. The “I can” statements are what we’re working towards these first 6 weeks of school or so!
3rd & 4th graders began their library time this year making connections between multiple pieces of literature that highlight the importance of the things they choose to do, and how those choices impact their community. If your student has not shared their #kindnessrocks project with you, ask them about it! They are now in the midst of learning about Destiny Discover, our new book search tool. For the next few weeks, they will be learning how this tool helps them locate and access library materials, both from within our school building, and from home!
