Finding a good book for yourself can be hard enough at times, but try doing it when -
a) you're an emergent reader
b) you have no idea where to start the hunt
And that's why our Reed raccoons worked hard this week navigating the library.
Each class worked in pairs to complete a scavenger hunt, locating everything from the ABC books, to the shelf marker pocket chart to nonfiction books on dogs & our check out location.
This was a great opportunity for friends to either refresh their knowledge of the library or to discover it for the first time. And it was surprising just how much students got out of it.
Last year, I spent time creating visual labels for our developing readers, in order to help them easily access some favorites or even new topics (see below for examples!).
With luck, between our orientation lessons, our skill building lessons early this year & our topic markers, students will be at home here in the library in no time!
We also started Library Lunch Club this Wednesday! LLC is for those students who want a break from the usual recess or some quiet time. The library is open over lunch recess for quiet reading, coloring, craft or to exchange books for eager students.
It was pretty special to have some of our regulars return!
