In October, kindergarten classes learn about community helpers. During library time, kindergarteners voted on which community helper they would like to learn more about. They chose the bus driver, crossing guard, and PE teacher. The kids came up with a list of questions for each. I interviewed each person and video-recorded the responses. The kindergarteners loved watching the videos. They finished by drawing a picture and telling what they had learned from their community helper.
In October, kindergarten students will read fiction and non-fiction books and learn some songs and rhymes about community helpers. Students in first through fourth grade will learn about how the library is organized, learn to understand call numbers, and learn about the Dewey Decimal System. Fifth graders are learning about being good digital citizens through the Digital Passport activities through Common Sense Media.
