December 2018 – Marla Unruh, Librarian – 324-1152
Question: What is library class all about?
Answer: It is all about…
Thinking … Creating … Sharing … Growing
Thinking…about how a story might end…about what to do with a problem…about children who are hungry in other parts of the world.
|Genius Clubbers thought about LEGO for story-telling.
|We shredded pictures of problems after we read WHAT DO YOU DO WITH A PROBLEM?
|Third-graders predicted what might happen to the lake monster in HATTIE AND HUDSON
|A student reflects on facts about children who have hard lives.|
Creating…. Building to help us think about a story … Learning through making!
|We made a house for the little mouse in
A DARK, DARK TALE.
|Genius Clubbers created with Snap Circuits.
|Genius Club knitters worked diligently.
Sharing…. what we created…an extemporaneous talk on the origins of Halloween…
|Origami ducks we made after reading
DUCK ON A TRACTOR.
|We showed Mrs. Cohn the paper Slinkys we made after reading THE MARVELOUS THING THAT CAME FROM A SPRING||Students had 10 minutes to gather facts and plan their short speeches.
Growing…. Can-Do helpers take responsibility…Thirds, fourth, and fifths can search and find the books they want.
|A Can-Do helper collects recycling||A 3rd-grader completed the assessment successfully.
|A 5th-grader searched by genre.

|Book Fair helpers – the grownups||Book Fair helpers – the A team
