This week in library all students are hearing Halloween related stories. 1st graders are reading the Halloween Hustle by Charlotte Gunnufson and talking about the rhyme and repetition in the story. 2nd graders are reading the Monarch nominee The Dark by Lemony Snicket and learning that things aren’t always as scary as they seem.
3rd graders are reading My Teacher is a Monster by Peter Brown, and using their visual literacy skills to read the illustrations and decipher what is happening in the story. 4th graders are reading Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds and talking about characters, setting, problem and solution, as well as mood and tone. The students will be asked to figure out the problem and solution from the different character’s point of view. 5th graders will get an introduction to primary vs. secondary resources by reading Aliens Are Coming!: The True Account of the 1938 War of the Worlds Radio Broadcast by M McCarthy and hearing the original War of the Worlds radio broadcast.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
