Invisible strings, police dogs and umbrella queens! (Library News - 4/18)

Kinders are open and eager to learn and love stories! During library classes Tomoyo and I take turns reading stories and sharing weekly reading responses (aka homework).

In March, we focused on the IB Learner Profile Risk Taker and read a great book called The Invisible String by Patrice Karst. This story describes the invisible string which connects us to all those dear, even when we are apart. The students were truly enthralled and loved the idea. It is one of the things which allows all of us to be risk takers. The other reading hit in March was The Umbrella Queen by Shirin Yim Bridges which tells the story of a girl who wants to paint umbrellas like the other women in her village. She is permitted to do so but takes an artistic risk when she paints elephants instead of butterflies.

Knowledgeable is our April IB Learner Profile. During Library time we read Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann. Ask your child to tell you all about Gloria’s humorous antics.
