Our school's library media program supports early literacy skills and hopes to instill a love of reading in our students, which is the foundation to all learning. Additionally, our library program helps your child to develop essential information literacy skills that are a necessity for their future development. The 21st Century's child needs to learn and have the ability to locate, evaluate, synthesize, and communicate information.   I ask you to partner with me and your child's teacher in ensuring that we prepare your child for this very fast pace environment. Throughout the year, I will be introducing your child to various  educational websites. If a computer is available please let them practice their skills. If a computer is not available, it would be very helpful for them to visit the Bordentown Public Library.
 
Kindergarten students are enjoying the books they check out during library. This month, we will visit the computer lab to practice our keyboarding skills. Please have your child bring in a headset if they haven't already.   Book care and library manners are always reinforced.  In March, kindergarten students will read spring stories including When Will It Be Spring Snowballs and Spring Brings Changes.  We will also read books by Dr. Seuss.
 
Grade one students reviewed the rules and procedures of the library.  Book care and selection techniques were also reviewed.  We will take a trip to the computer lab to practice keyboarding skills.  Please have your child bring a headset that can be kept at school. In March, first grade students will read spring stories including Spring: An Alphabet Acrostic and The Willow Flute We will also read books by Dr. Seuss.
 
 
Grade two students began the year with a review of how to select both fiction and nonfiction books.  Text features of each type were explained.   A trip to the computer lab is coming this month.  Please have your child bring a headset that can be kept at school. In March, second grade students will examine title pages. Spine labels and shelf labels of fiction, nonfiction and biography books will be compared. 
 
 
Grade three students are checking out library books that are of interest to them.  Various search techniques were used.  A trip to the computer lab is coming this month.  Please have your child bring a headset that can be kept at school.
