In Grades K-2
The library program for grades K-2, in close collaboration with the work in the classroom, supports beginning reading, listening, communication, and technology skills. Activities include story times, read aloud sessions, literacy events related to school-based literacy goals, beginning investigations, and guidance for book selection. Students learn how to locate and borrow materials and how to select books for personal interests as well as for assignments and reading growth. Current and classic authors and illustrators are introduced in an effort to present the rich body of multicultural children’s literature. In second grade, students begin to apply models for beginning research projects planned in collaboration with the librarian and classroom teachers, specialists, and staff.
