As we enter the third week of school, students are becoming more comfortable with the library routine, which is demonstrated by the “student buzz” in the library. Students are using DVD players, CD players, reading independently, using Kindles, checking in and checking out books on their own, and be respectful in the library.
3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will soon begin using their own knowledge, as well as what they are learning in the library to share information to their classmates and community. Once the students become efficient with the library stations, they will create, produce, and design a number of videos to demonstrate student knowledge.
Grades 2nd, 1st, and Kindergarten will continue working on developing an awareness of nonfiction and fiction books, as well as a variety of authors and book styles. Sooner than later, the lower grades will create images of their book selections that will allow everyone to see their “likes” and “dislikes” of books in the library.
When students share what they have learned, they are teaching, creating, and motivating others to learn … so we have the STUDENT CIRCLE OF INFORMATION!
