Second grade: We also read School's First Day of School, and reviewed our library rules and procedures. In our second lesson, second graders played a silly shoe game to remind us of the Five Finger Rule and that we need to find books that are just right for us. In October we will begin learning about how the library is organized, how call numbers work, and we will play Mrs. Henderson's favorite game: "Trick or Treat" where we go looking for books on the shelf and try to find them by call number.
Third, Fourth & Fifth grade: Our first lesson was a Kahoot game to review our library rules and procedures, with a few new book talks to get students excited about the new books that came out over the summer. Next we got right to work installing and learning a new app: Destiny Discover. For students who were familiar with Destiny Quest, this is the new app from Follett that replaces (and hopefully improves) DQ. Students can use Destiny Discover to search the library collection, find books on the shelves, read reviews, place books on hold, and coolest of all: they can read library ebooks on their ipads! We will continue working in Destiny Discover all year long, so this will be ongoing learning. In October we'll learn about all the amazing things we can do with our TPL eCards, such as ebooks and audiobooks on Overdrive, TrueFlix & FreedomFlix, and more.
