Kitten’s First Full Moon

Posted in kindergarten, and picture book lesson

Last week in the Jackson Library, kindergarteners listened to the story, Kitten’s First Full Moon by Henkes. During the story, they had to identify picture cause and effect events. At the tables, they matched the events again and watched two video versions of the book. They love this instant classic book!

Rockin’ in Our School Shoes

Posted in kindergarten, and picture book lesson

Last week in the Jackson Library, kindergarten and first grade were rocking in their school shoes like Pete the Cat. After we read Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes, the kids drew Pete at Jackson Elementary School. They wrote a sentence about what Pete was doing at school. After the activity, they sang Pete the Cat songs during check out. As Pete says, “It’s alllllll good!”

What Will Hatch?

Posted in kindergarten, nonfiction lesson, and picture book lesson

Last week in the Jackson Library, kindergarteners listened to Jennifer Ward’s What Will Hatch? They were surprised to see a crocodile and a platypus in this nonfiction book! They drew lines to match the animal to its egg at the tables and decorated an egg at the computer station.

Little Blue and Little Yellow

Posted in kindergarten, and picture book lesson

Kindergarten loved the Lionni story, Little Blue and Little Yellow. We discussed what a ‘classic’ book is and how this book is still loved even though it is very old. At the tables, they tore pieces from yellow and blue squares to create their own little yellow and little blue and then they drew a game for them to play together. Check out our library bulletin board!
