Kinder Solves a Rhyme Crime

Posted in apps, kindergarten, picture book lesson, and reading skills

Kindergarteners at Jackson became sleuths this week when we read the famous artist Jon Burgerman’s book, Rhyme Crime. They laughed out loud at the funny drawings and rhyming pairs in the book. When Hammy’s hat was swapped for a cat, the kids had to come to the poster put the cat on Hammy’s head. They loved solving the riddle of how the thief escaped jail at the end!  We played the Partners in Rhyme app during check out. After check out, we played Jack Hartmann’s fun interactive rhyming game!

Count the Monkeys

Posted in first grade, kindergarten, and picture book lesson

Kindergarteners and first graders sure did have fun this week in the Jackson Library counting the monkeys! We read this hilarious book by Mac Barnett and then the kids designed their own monkey counting page like the ones that DIDN’T appear in the story! At the computer station, they played a monkey numerical order game and checked out books. Fun!

Kindergarteners and first graders had fun in the Jackson Library last week with Pete the Cat! After reading Pete the Cat: Rockin’ in My School Shoes, the kids pretended Pete was at Jackson Elementary and thought of something he might love at school. They created their own book page! Then they explored Starfall at the computer station.
