Hard to believe we’re nearing the end of the first quarter! Where has the time gone? The fall book fair is just around the corner. Whew!
I am incredibly thankful to have returned as Seward El’s librarian this year. The library has been busy, with a new library aide jumping right in and making magic happen. Rebecca Brown has been adding her energy and creativity wherever she can.
So far we’ve created monsters in the first and second grade classes (inspired by a book called The Notebook of Doom: Rise of the Balloon Goons by Troy Cummings), lots of dots with all of the classes (inspired by International Dot Day and the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds), and imagined bringing various animals to the library with the Kindies (inspired by I Took My Frog to the Library by Eric A. Kimmel). Most of the classes have been exploring how to use the online library catalog to look for books and the older classes have been looking at websites that will help them with research. The library has also added new books to the collection, presented Birthday Books to July, August and September birthdays and hosted Muffins for Moms/Donuts of Dads twice, with great attendance both times.
More detailed blog posts will follow, including photos, but I wanted to get a bit of news out to anyone reading the blog. We’ve been silent too long!
