M. E. Small Elementary Library

December Library/Technology

We are very busy in both the library and computer lab.

In Kindergartener I shared on of my favorite books The Magic Hat by Mem Fox. A magic hat changes the characters in the book into an animal character, the students then drew what a magic hat would change them into. I also shared a brand new book, Home by Carson Ellis. In first grade we compared and contrasted Three Little Pig stories.

Second Grade

In second grade the students are hearing folktales around the world. And we are charting them on a world map.

Third Grade

In third grade the students have been engaged in a Patricia Polacco author study. Patricia Polacco is a premiere storyteller and also illustrates her books.

Computer Lab

In technology we have been using three great links on our Symbaloo; Wonderopolis, BrainPopJr. and StoryLine Online.
