This was a short week, because we were off on Monday. How is it that short weeks always feel REALLY long???
Here’s what happened in our Learning Commons this week!
All 1st – 5th grade classes were shown how to use our Self-Checkout station. Instead of demonstrating for every class myself, I made a video of one of our 2nd graders going through the steps of checking out a book on her own. I showed the video to everyone…we’ll see how they do!
Kindergarten students wrapped up their book care lessons with this video. One of my favorites to show each year. I am so, so thankful to Mrs. Stover! She seems awesome. After watching the video, they come up to the SMARTBoard for a sorting activity. They have to move images to “Yes, Yes” or “No, No.” There are pictures like someone holding their book the proper way, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a baby with a book in his mouth, etc.
I kicked off our National Library Card Sign Up Month promotion this week – I want students, parents, teachers (everyone, really) to send me a picture of themselves with their public library card. I’ve gotten a few super cute ones already!
We got LOTS of new books in this week, which is always exciting. And, I’ve been doing a lot of planning for some upcoming professional development I’m doing for teachers, a recycling grant I’m writing, Dot Day/Week celebrations, and our Star Wars READS Day event! Lots of fun stuff happening in our Learning Commons!
How was your week?
