In addition to learning to care for library books, first grade students learn to use placesavers when looking for books. Students learn how to recognize authors and illustrators on the cover of books. They also learn the difference between fiction and non-fiction books and their location on the shelves. First grade students are emerging as readers and are introduced to beginning chapter books.
Students complete many hands on activities based on stories ranging from using finger puppets to retell the story, to activity sheets, and coloring sheets. We will discuss many themes that occur in books such as friendship, sharing, feelings of loneliness and being afraid.
