Welcome Back to School!! 2019 - 2020
It's a new year in the Falcons Den and we have taken off running!!! Classes started with a bang!!
Our Kinders are learning how to behave in the media center and how to take care of books!! They will begin checking out books the last full week of September.
First graders have reviewed book care, SOAR rules and are now focused on the integrated lesson of "Tools the Media Specialist Uses". They have learned all the jobs the media specialist does and all of the titles the media specialist has ie.. librarian, teacher librarian, and the list goes on. Be sure to ask them about the media specialist tools and continue to read those library books with your students. Also ensure they are returned weekly.
Second graders have also reviewed SOAR rules and book care. They are now learning science in the media center by learning about the 3 states of matter. Students watched a short video and then worked collaboratively to categorize different states of matter cards.
Third graders worked collaboratively to come up with SOAR rules to govern their behavior in the media center. They are enjoying being able to check out 2 books weekly and even daily as they finish reading. Currently they are beginning to work on a social studies project the 3 branches of government. They are super excited to know they will become the expert on their branch and get to share their knowledge with their peers. Here's to learning!!
Our 4th and 5th grade Falcons also worked collaboratively to come up with SOAR rules to govern their behavior in the media center. Fourth grade students are extending their knowledge of poetry in the media center by learning about inferring, and using chromebooks along with the program PearDeck. Fifth grade students have embarked on a study of being internet awesome, they are learning how to stay safe while browsing and using social media accounts. They are also learning that they should be careful in what they post.
Our media center is alive with learning, stop by to share or to volunteer, we would love to have you!!
