Kinders: Welcome to the Library!

Checking out books on their own is a big step for most kinders and that is exactly what TIS kindergarteners in all tracks will be doing beginning this week.  To help them keep track of their books (one book at a time) and book drawings (yes, just for fun and prizes!), each kinder will receive a blue library book bag.  Parents, please help your child remember to use this bag to bring books back and forth to school.  It is also a good idea to keep the books in the bag while not in use so as not to attract dogs, guinea pigs, spaghetti sauce and babies!

Kinders love the idea of reading and the library!  Take the time to ask your child about his/her book.  Good points for discussion are:

  • Main characters?

  • Setting?

  • Favorite part?

  • Fiction/non-fiction?

  • What did they learn?

  • How is the character like me?

Library bags are available to parents and other grades in the library or from Lauren in Stearns Hall for $3 each.
