Library in Kindergarten

Students are introduced to how books are organized within the library as they learn to locate and select books of interest at the appropriate level.

  • Explore multiple perspectives through diverse fiction and nonfiction literature, and connect personal level of understanding to the community through guided dialogue.
  • Formulate questions to further understanding.
  • Identify details within text and images to support perspectives and demonstrate understanding.
  • Draw conclusions based on evidence presented in text and images.
  • Explore print and digital sources to create research bibliographies in concert with classroom projects.
  • Through exposure to multiple genres of texts, engage in guided discussions on multiple genres of texts and creatively express understanding and ideas.
  • Through read-alouds, make inferences, connections of prior knowledge to new learning, and meaning through read-alouds.
  • Recognize the variety of purposes behind resources through information literacy games.
