Check it Out

Pride Elementary Library, October 2015

I thought I'd start out this month's newsletter by giving you a look at some of the activities going on in the library over the next few weeks.

Oct. 12-16 I have been introducing the K-2 Kentucky Bluegrass Award nominees to all classes this week.

Oct. 19-23 We will be doing storytime/read aloud themes surrounding bullying to coincide with KY Safe Schools Week

Oc. 26-30 Halloween Storytime and activities

Nov. 2-6 Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead, a Mexican Holiday). Nov. 1 is the actual date for Dia de Muertos.

Students are using our Makerspace daily in small groups when they visit the library. The Makerspace is currently not in use from 11:15-11:45 or during KG time(11:55-12:45). If you would like to send small groups(5 or less) of students to the Makerspace as a reward during either of those times, please let me know.

As always, if there is something I can do to support what's going on in your classroom through read alouds/storytime/library skills lessons, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm happy to help you.


Introduce your students to a forgeign language with Lyric Language from KET on Demand. This series combines original music and bilingual lyrics with live-action video adventure to introduce children to foreign language vocabulary. The song lyrics, printed on the television screen and simultaneously sounded out, alternate between English and the other language to provide instant word comprehension. Children can sing along to practice pronunciation. Subtitles are provided in both English and the featured language.
