It's Snowing in the Library!
Library happenings for December
For your first visit, I will go over the different sections of the library, talk about some general rules, explain what the all of those color dot stickers mean, and introduce your class to the December centers.
I still have not finished cataloging the non-fiction section. It should be done in the next couple of weeks. So for now, please use the fiction books. If someone in your class finds a non-fiction book they really want, I may be able to catalog it quickly. It will be a case by case basis.
Typically, I'm here Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8:30am-12:30pm. You will receive an email soon asking you to schedule your library day and time for your class. Normally, I have classes come twice a week for 30 minutes of instruction and testing.
For example, Mrs. Hopkins comes every Tuesday at 1:30pm and Thursday at 10:30am. During that time, I test the class in AR, assist them in choosing a new library book, and we do the centers I have setup. If we have time, we will do additional computer time.
Also, feel free to send individual students to the library. Please let me know if you have any questions about signing up.
