Doors to learning are open…

The week started off with a demonstration of the online poster website Glogster with Mrs. Lorge’s 5th graders.  We went over many of the tools that can be used on this website, along with how to download images from Britanica Image Quest.  Throughout the week students returned to the library to log into their own accounts and work on their glogster about their famous person.  To see what Mrs. D showed students, please feel free to click here to see and hear my explanation using Screenr.

Kindergartners practiced listening to a story when Mrs. D shared the read-aloud Shh! – Lift the Flaps But Don’t Wake The Giant!  Several also are enjoying visiting their library before school to check out a new book each day they return one.  

1st graders connected with Franklin and how fragile friendship can be in Franklin Is Bossy.  We are still practicing using our library buddies to check out books from the shelves.reading

2nd graders shared their computer knowledge as we went through a PowerPoint reviewing parts of a computer, their function and the importance of treating computers respectfully as part of our district’s AUP.

3rd, 4th and 5th graders all reviewed using the online library catalog to do a title and subject search.  Over 1,000 books were checked out this week to 25 classes of students and numerous students and staff checking out books before school and after school.  

“Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.” – Laura Bush
