Kindergarten and 1st Grade: We're learning about the Caldecott Medal and the books that have won this prestigious award for great illustrations. Some of our favorites are Officer Buckler and Gloria, A Sick Day for Amos McGee and The Lion and the Mouse.
2nd and 3rd Grade: We're learning about the Dewey system for organizing non-fiction books into subject categories, and how to use Library World and Dewey numbers to locate great books!
4th and 5th Grade: We're exploring literary genres, and have already shared some great Biographies and Fantasies. In February we're reading Mysteries and March will be our Realistic, Historical and Science Fiction study.
