The library is up and running! Well I suppose up and “walking” would be better since I don’t promote running in the library. It has been great seeing all of the classes come in this week. Before I get into what we all did, we need to back track to Saturday.
Summer Reading Club
Over the summer many of our students participated in the summer reading club at Richmond Public Library. So many in fact that we received the trophy for having the highest percentage of participants out of all of the schools! The summer finale party was on Saturday. Many of our families were able to attend and see the trophy. RPL will be coming to our school in the future to present the trophy to the school. We will keep it for approximately 6 months, and then it will be displayed at the Brighouse branch. What an exciting accomplishment for our students.
Week at a Glance
This week was spent going over library routines, expectations and working on our keys. All of our students know how to speak “Librarian” very well. If you’re not sure what that is, please have your child demonstrate. Our Kindergarten students did a tour of the library and learned where the story (Picture Books) and learning (Non Fiction) books are located. Next week we will be going over routines. They will not be taking out books until Sept 25th.
Our students in grades 1-5 had the opportunity to take home books. The grade 1’s were very excited to learn they could take home 4 books instead of 2.
In grade 4 we read “Be Quiet” by Ryan Higgins. He is a fantastic author and these students were introduced to him last year with “Mother Bruce.” “Be Quiet” is a book about a mouse who wants to create a wordless picture book. Unfortunately his friends will not stop talking. This book had the students laughing the whole time. I can tell it will be hard for me to keep it on the shelf.
