Second Grade Library Newsletter

Week of October 5-9, 2015

Hello CCE Library Friends and Families! October is here and isn't it lovely? This time of year finds me on my front porch, coffee or tea in hand and a good book shared with one of my kids or occasionally, greedily stealing a couple minutes to read alone. I hope you are all enjoying the more fall like weather (when we have it) and all of the things that fall means to you.

It has been a very busy couple weeks! I apologize for not getting a newsletter out the last two weeks but I am trying to figure out the best way to reach more people. In the end I have decided to continue posting it to the library website and sharing the link to this week's newsletter. I love the ability I have to share videos and pictures online so I'm going to give it another try.

This year has been a big change for us in the library since I have so much built in time for technology instruction and practice. It is amazing to me how much we've already been able to do!

Second graders just finished reading Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie by Julie Sternberg. The kids loved the story and we had a lot of great discussions about loss, friendship and school while reading this book together. This is the first book in a trio including Like Bug Juice on a Burger and Like Carrot Juice on a Cupcake.

This week in technology the kids went into the computer lab and were able to choose a game of their choice on The last two weeks they were busy with iPad activities so I thought a day of choice was in order. The games on this website are sorted by grade level and then further by skill that is being addressed. So whether they know it or not they are practicing keyboard usage, mouse usage, and math, reading, spelling, strategy among other skills.

Please remember to send library books with your second grader on or before Wednesday so they can check out for the new week.

Have a great weekend!
