K-2 Library Lessons

Thursday, September 18, 2014

This week has been a busy one in the Library-Media Center.

Kindergarten students were introduced to the world of book care with our friend, Marion the Hedgehog, in the story What Happened to Marion’s Book? by Brook Berg. In the story, Marion learns that she needs to take good care of her things – especially her library books!

They were also given special P.E.T. (Protect Every Title) Patrol book bags to keep their library books safe and dry.


First Grade classes reviewed how to use shelf markers by singing the “Shelf Marker Song” (to the tune of Hokey Pokey).  Ask them to sing it for you!

Second Grade students began listening to the story Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians by Jackie Mims Hopkins.  In the story, Goldie finds books that are too hard and too easy.  She uses the 5 Finger Rule to locate books that are “JUST RIGHT.”  After reading the beginning of the story, we practiced this rule and made book marks to remember it!
