September Memories….

dscn2253I can’t believe it is already October!  The weeks are flying by….Here is a short summary of what we’ve been learning about in the Riverside Library this past September:

Kindergartners:  Mrs. D enjoys reading stories this past month including Shh! Don’t Wake the Giant, Clifford’s 1st Autumn and The Last Puppy.  Using our mouse and clicking on the left side has been our focus this month.  The Mini Mouse.us website and the Bees and Honey website have given students more confidence as they improve with each lesson.

1st graders:  Mrs. D loved seeing how much students remember about taking good care of library books.  We played the Yes/No game.  We also watched a great video on book care using Skippy Jon Jones as the main character.  Everyone had the opportunity to get into Teach Your Monster to Read 2: Fun with Words during computer lab time.

2nd graders:  Students did a great job identifying computer parts and explaining what they are used for along with using Tap the Technology to practice.  Choosing a “Just right book” was also discussed and we all agreed it is important that one of the two books students check out should be something they can read to themselves.

3rd graders:  Students logged into their computers and added books to their Big Universe book shelf.  Students also practiced using Follett Destiny to look up books on a favorite subject.  Students are bringing their iPads with them to the library so they can read using Epic books or Big Universe during check out time.

4th graders:  Mrs. D was happy to see how many students remembered how to look up books using Follett Destiny.  We also did a review of our library using Library Jeopardy.  Digital Etiquette was focused on using BrainPop.  Students are bringing their iPads with them to the library so they can read using Epic books or Big Universe during check out time.

5th graders:  Many students are excited to join the Library Crew and help Mrs. D and Mrs. T. with keeping our library running smoothly.  We also took time to add books to our Big Universe book shelves and to make sure all students had access to Epic Books.  We reviewed areas around the library using a QR code scavenger hunt.  Students are bringing their iPads with them to the library so they can read using Epic books or Big Universe during check out time.

Mrs. D loves September especially because both her husband and her son celebrate their birthdays – a fun time at the Dembowski household!rscn2261
