This week we talked about taking care of your library books.
With the first graders, I found a suggestion to show the video “Don’t Let the Pigeon Touch the Books” on YouTube. I paired it with Mo Williems newest Pigeon book “Pigeon needs a Bath”. After the video we discussed things that Pigeon did in the video that would NOT be taking care of your books.
With the second graders, we read a rhyming story “At This Very Moment” by Jim Arnosky and then read the rhymes on the posters that I have posted in the library. We discussed ways that books might get wet and how to avoid that from happening, gave examples of mistreating the book’s spine, talked about what the word “due” means and when books are due in our library, as well as what to do if you find rips or pages falling out of books.
