General Information: Students enter the library and come to the "big rug" in front of the Smart Board. Students are expected to sit criss cross with hands in their laps. They are also expected to raise their hands to speak. We learn how to be respectful of others, and how to give positive feedback. At the end of class, students are given a "smellie" (chapstick on the hand) if they have followed rules. We also pick 4 students for bearbucks each class period (names are written down so we can be sure to take turns - as long as we earn them). We have begun checking out library books, but kindergarten leaves their books in the classroom (they will begin taking them home in first grade).
This week, we are going to continue reading Arkansas Diamond Award nominees. We will read all 11 nominees before we vote in April. With each book we read, we will discuss the story, answer higher level questions, form questions of our own, discuss new vocabulary, and sometimes write or draw reactions to some of the books we read.
