I am not reading aloud this week except to the kindergarteners, who are not yet checking out during class visits. For the first couple of months they will practice with the paintsticks and figure out what interests them most in our library. They will begin checking out with their classes in January.
With other classes I am talking about what we'll do in library this year, circulation, and reviewing use of the catalog with students who have learned it already. Grade 3 will begin really learning the Dewey decimal system and our catalog software around the beginning of October.
