Library Classes

Pre K

PreK students are getting used to sitting on the rug listening to fun stories like Read to Tiger.  They borrow books too, and earn a sticker for every time they return their book on library day.

Kindergarten

We read Beverly Billingsley Borrows a Book.  Beverly was scared because she was late returning her library book.  Do you think you will have to go to jail because of a late library book? Not here at BBS! If you forget your book on library day, just return it as soon as you remember.

1st Grade

Students in grade 1 are ready to borrow books from all over the library. But this means being careful and using a Shelf Marker when browsing for books.  This holds a place on the shelf while you are looking at the book. Then you can put it back in exactly the right place if you don't want it.

2nd Grade

 We enjoyed reading Stella Louella's Runaway Book, which has a mystery in it.  After several clues, students figured out which book Stella was hunting for.

3rd Grade

Students learned about biographies and how to find them in the library (their call numbers have a B, for the Biography section of the library).  Each student had to locate a biography of a specific person, and study the book to figure out why that person was/is famous.

4th Grade

Students are learning about Fiction call numbers.  Fiction in library language means Chapter Book.  These all have an F in their call number, and are in the Fiction section of the library. They are shelved in order of author's last name, so students are practicing alphabetical order.

Grade 4 Students each researched a different US state, then displayed their findings in a word cloud in the shape of that state.

In response to the book Henri's Scissors, Grade 2 students made collages in the artist's style.  When Henri Matisse lost the ability to paint, he discovered he could make beautiful pictures with paper and scissors.
