In the Library … Week of 9/8

on September 15, 2014

this week library

Kindergarten: There were two classes that got a different story, but with most classes we watched The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Charlie the Ranch Dog via Barnes & Noble Storytime. I don’t remember how I first found this site, and they don’t really add more stories, but there are some favorites there, including The Kissing Hand, Fancy Nancy, and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

1st grade: We also watched The Very Hungry Caterpillar before looking for books.

2nd-6th grade: I showed students how to search for a book using our online catalog and copy info onto a CAT slip before they got to look for books. *I will update later with a copy of my CAT slip so you know what I’m talking about. The check-out system we use is Destiny Follett. Here’s some examples of our main search page and what a search will turn up.
