Feb 6, 2015: Library

Second graders have started off the New Year learning about the Dewey Decimal System.  At first, all the numbers seemed confusing! But in fact, it is a language.  The students could relate to this idea of the system as a language and were eager to explore how each digit or letter in a call number added meaning and specificity.  We made our own book spines with call numbers.  More than 200,000 libraries in 135 countries use this system. We will continue to build our DDC knowledge throughout the year so the students can be independent library users.

I am so impressed with the creativity and reading commitment made by all the students for this year's reading challenge.  Next week during library classes we will celebrate our readers/artists with certificates, rewards, games and cupcakes!  Feel free to stop by the library after school to see all the amazing art projects!
