Dear SA parents,
Library lessons during Continuous Learning will focus on standards from our Burlington School District K-2 Library Continuum and our Burlington School District Grades 3-5 Continuum. At SA, we will focus on the Standard “I am a Citizen” for K-5 and the learning targets for this standard.
Please reference the above K-2 document for the learning targets for “I am a Citizen.” All library lessons will link to this standard. Reading tic tac toe, for example, allows our students to practice seeking multiple perspectives from literature and sharing their learning with their community.
Please reference the above Grade 3-5 document for the learning targets of “I am a Citizen.” Again, all library lessons will link to this standard. For example, the “Let’s Play the Email Game” allows students to demonstrate this learning target: “I can discuss responsible use and misuse of technology and describes personal consequences of inappropriate use of information and technology.”
Read! Read! Read S’More!
Besides our library lessons, there are numerous resources, including digital books, on the SA Library Resources page. Junior Library Guild and Tumblebooks are two of my favorite digital book resources. Our databases — excellent authoritative sources of information for our young learners — are located on our SA Learning Links page. Please do not hesitate to reach out by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions and/or concerns. Remember reading is an excellent way to bring calm to our world.
Free Books from FFL
In addition, Fletcher Free Library is teaming up with the district to provide free books to our students from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays at the SA meal site. Distribution is weather dependent. The library is distributing books at other sites, too. Here is more information.
Read! Read! Read!
