Dear Parents,

We are thrilled to share with you some exciting opportunities in store for your child in our library program this year :

Our program will be promoting the very best of children’s literature to your child with activities designed to help student’s enjoy the stories even more.

We will be doing our very best to get (or keep) your children “hooked on reading” by recommending specific reading materials to each individual.

We have added more or less 800 new titles this year of the latest and most exciting new books for our students, including quality non-fiction to help meet the Common Core requirements

Students from each grade level will be learning information literacy skills specifically suited to their developmental needs.

We will be working with classroom teachers to help them find materials especially suited to the individual interests and abilities of your child.

Library lessons will stress good Digital Citizenship, helping your child make safe and ethical decisions when using the Internet.

0ur Fiction collection is now classified by genre, making it easier for our students find what they want to read according to their interests.

We have a lot of special events being planned, such as our annual Book week celebration, book fairs, and reading contests.

The library team is ready and excited about this year and is committed to helping your child become a critical thinker, enthusiastic reader, skillful researcher, and ethical user of information.

Fiction and Non-Fiction for Early Years

The idea of Fiction and Non-Fiction is already introduced to the Nursery students. At the beginning of the library class the students watched a video of real chickens at the farm and then they were asked about the colors of the chickens and whether it looks real or not. Then they listened to the story of Pete’s Chicken by Harriet Zeifert; it is about a bunny who was asked by his art teacher to draw a chicken but ended up making a chicken that looks like a turkey with weird colors. Of course, just like Pete, they had a chance to make their own version of an extraordinary chicken!

Fiction Books Pokemon Hunting

“I wanna be the very best,

Like no one ever was…”

“Fiction books gotta find them all!”

Grade 2 students surely had fun doing the library version of Pokémon Hunting. To catch a Pokémon, of course, they were given a PokeBall. These PokeBalls contain the call number and the title of the fiction book where the Pokémon is hiding.

This is not just a fun activity but also a practice of what they learned about “Finding Fiction Books on the Shelves.” Their eyes were wide open with excitement and happiness as they find their book and the Pokémon inside it, this week it was Pikachu. Sure enough, they are already excited to learn about “Finding Non-Fiction Books on the Shelves” and of course, finding a new Pokémon inside the non-fiction book.
