October 2018

It’s starting to feel a bit like fall.

This month in library classes…

The kindergarteners are listening to books featuring different kinds of problem solving.

First graders are beginning a unit on fairy tales.  In this uint, they listen to variations of common fairy tales from around the world and come up with similarities and differences.  They also learn about story elements that are found in most fairy tales.

Second graders are learning how to navigate Google Classroom and practicing a variety of computer skills, and terminology.

Students in grades 3 – 5 are working on their Digital Citizenship Units.  These lessons are intended to give students the skills they need to appropriate, responsible and effective internet users.  Some topics covered in all grades are personal information, strong passwords, and how to deal with cyberbullies.  In grades 4 and 5, we will also be looking at issues of intellectual property and social media.
