Variety is the spice of life

Today was a busy day. There were four classes and a LEAP group all in the Library Lab today and each did something different.

The day started with our Kindergarten and first grade coming in. We read The Day the Crayons Quit and did a short activity writing about our favorite crayon before selecting books for checkout.

The first and second grades came in to a short lesson on economics linked to the “Reading is an Investment” program. We read Three Cups and did an online activity at PBS Kids.

During LEAP three groups continued to work on and solidify ideas for their projects. I would reveal more, but we plan to demonstrate our work at the next school board meeting and I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise. I will say though things are coming along nicely and we have some pretty neat plans in the works! (Hint: temperature, lights, display, music!)

The upper grades came in to hear a reading of one of the DCF books from this year’s list and a lesson on the catalog system, decimal order, and alphabetization in the library. Then I put them to work! Using our keen knowledge (and a little help from our friends), we managed to put back on the shelves most of the books returned throughout the day. Thanks for the help, friends!
