This week TK, K, and 1st are hearing books about the alphabet. Grade 2 will tour the library and if we have time see a short visual presentation about the differences between the spine labels of nonfiction and fiction books. Grade 3 begins to learn the Dewey Decimal System. Grade 4 and grade 5 are both considering books that are rich in opportunities for discussion: The Librarian of Basra, by Jeanette Winter; and Unspoken, by Henry Cole.
In terms of the schedule, it's a regular week in the library. I do have to leave tomorrow at 3:00 to be at an appointment, and Wednesday the library will close at 1:45 so I can attend a districtwide meeting of library staff off campus.
