Library Lady Leak v. 5
"It tastes like chicken!"
*When reading a book on the five senses, we observed that girls were looking at snails. We went through the five senses to see which senses they were using. When we got to taste we got the obligatory "BLAH", "YUCK" and "EWWW!" After I share that some people eat snails, one little boy turns to his friends and knowingly shares, "Yes, I heard it tastes like chicken."
*Overheard..."Have you heard about this guy named Pope?" They were, of course, talking about Pope Francis.
*When reading the 2X2 wordless book The Girl and The Bicycle, students were asked to predict what idea the girl had to get enough money to buy the bike after watching her brother throwing leaves in the air. The following are some suggestions:
---Make fake money
---dig for treasure under the leaves
---get money from her little brother
---ask her parents for money
---and last but not least...sell her brother for money
Shout-out to Mrs. Dinger and Mrs. Roberts for allowing students to work on their summaries of their favorite 2X2 books. Your students are pumped about earning their tags.
Shout-out to students in third, fourth, and fifth grades as they learned to put books in alphabetical order. Lots of great teamwork and encouragement was witnessed.
Shout-out to Mrs. Roper's class as they have been practicing being respectful and it is showing! We love "Yes, Ma'am" in the library!
So many students have been earning their 2X2 tags that I have already placed another order for more!
Doing the Dewey
Some classes have begun working on their Dewey tags. Those that have read at least three books from one of the Dewey sections and completed a project have been on the morning announcements. Congratulations to those who are working hard to earn their Reading Tags!
Students have been challenged to put books in alphabetical order. This has been an eye-opener for some of them as they did not think it would be that difficult. Those who correctly organize their stack of books earned Cougar Cash for their hard work.
As our friend said goodbye as he prepares to move to Chicago, he donated some books to the library before leaving. He earned a special reading tag for his giving heart that is indicative of the BCE spirit.
