The students in 3rd-6th grade created individual profile flags that hang in our library.
Second graders chose random objects to develop a story. They had to determine the main character, sequence of events, conflict and solution. Sharing, planning and communicating in a small group was also an important lesson.
5th and 6th graders practiced writing words using the Spanish alphabet “sounds.”
Fourth graders are in the process of writing a short, group story from the ground up. Each small group chose, planned for and illustrated their own setting. (Badlands, Hot Springs, Neptune and a Shopping Mall were all unexpected choices!) Each member of the group then created a character using free choice materials. They will then determine the role of each of the characters within their setting and the plot. What Genre will they choose? Will it be a Fairy Tale? Mystery? Science Fiction? We will post the final product!
¿Cómo estás? ¿Como te sientes? ¿Feliz? ¿Triste? ¿Enojado? ¿Cansado? Students in
K-6 are exposed to Spanish during each library class. Kindergarten recently drew
pictures related to our talk on emotions.
First graders have read books and held interesting discussions about rights and
responsibilities. After listening to “If I was the Boss for a Week,” they drew pictures
and provided statements of what they would do if they were in charge. There was
a lot of variety in their answers; from being in charge of all the police, running a
horse farm, and “borrowing” mom and dad’s money to buy all the toys they wanted!
