Bedtime Stories and comfy pajamas

When the weather turned cold outside, students got warm and comfy in the library with some fuzzy bath robes and fun bedtime stories.  After sharing the stories we like to read best at bedtime, we read Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney.  Our buddy Bernie came to visit wearing his pajamas and brought his friend Llama with him.  It was a great way to warm up on a cold day!

Vote for Books!!

The library was draped in red, white and blue last week as we talked about the presidential election.  We read My Teacher for President and Election Day to learn about the president's job and how we elect someone.  Afterwards, students got to practice their right to vote by voting for their favorite book character.  After selecting four candidates from books we have read in the library, students voted for their favorite.  Once the votes were tallied and the results were in...Pete the Cat won by a landslide!

Fired up about Fire Safety!!

The Albertville Fire Department paid our students a special visit last Friday to talk about the importance of fire safety. We spent some time in the library this week reviewing what we had learned.  We read the book No Dragons for Tea and talked about what we do if we are in a house fire.  Our buddy Bernie came by to see us and brought firefighter hats for everyone to get their picture made in!

Let's be Green by Recycling!

Students are learning how to be green in the library this week.  We have met a recycling superhero named Michael Recycle and his stories have helped us learn the importance of recycling and what kinds of things can be recycled!  Students practiced with a recycling sorting game and we had a lot of fun posing with photo props!  We also learned about why we shouldn't litter and how we have to all work together to keep our Earth clean and green!!

Things are getting a little BATTY in here!!

We discovered some friends hanging out in our storybook tree this week!! Someone must have left the window open and in flew a few batty guests! We thought this was the perfect time to read the book Bats at the Library.  Since things were already a little batty, our good friend Bernie decided to pop out of the tree dressed as Batman!! He brought our library a pet bat named Battyrella to hang out with us this year.  You never know what you're going to find in here!

A little visit from our friends!

Students visited the library this week to learn about how to take great care of their library books!! We read a story together called Forest Friends go to School.  The characters taught us about what we should and shouldn't do with our books.  When we were finished, our forest friends made a surprise visit from inside our storybook tree and brought a little treat...stickers!!  Students then checked out their first library book!  Happy Reading!!

We began our lesson with a Storytime Song!! This helped
us get the wiggles out!

After reading our book, we made a chart with pictures showing
things we do and do not want to do with our books!
