One of the things I focus on in my Kindergarten lessons is how to use the library. Along with this we also focus on library manners. This includes behavior while in the library and also how to care for the books we check out and take home. To help communicate these ideas to the students, I share with them some of my favorite Sesame Street videos. In one video, Cookie Monster learns what he can get when he goes to the library and in the other, Grover teaches us why it is important to use indoor voices when visiting the library. These quickly become student favorites with requests of, "Can we watch that one again?" Well, of course we can!
About me . . .
Formerly a classroom teacher. Currently a School Library Media Coordinator. I loved being in the classroom, but now that I am in the library I can't imagine doing anything else! The library is my favorite place to be. From my rocking chair to my ABC rug to the smiling student faces checking out books, the library just can't be beat!
Learning in the Library
I have a fixed schedule in my library which means I get to see all the students in my library classes each week. This blog highlights some of the things we are learning and some of the great things going on in our library!
