Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am new to Library. My plans for Kindergarten lessons need help. I have ideas for sharing books and helping them to love books but could use any advice for lessons in Library.

So far:
parts of a book
care of books
kinds of books

THanks in advance!

Think about how you structure lessons

One thing I learned and need to remind myself is that kinders need more breaks, more reminders, and more time.

I like to start with expectations and social skills lessons interwoven with things like book care and enjoyment. I have a library puppet (a couple actually) and the kids loved the puppet so much I ended up building a pvc puppet stage and we did puppet shows. My puppet helps me give lessons and when we catch kids turning pages and reading nicely they get a high five from the puppet or a sticker.

I made up a library chant (completely random one day when I had extra time) for my kinders-- "we love books, we love to read, we love the library, it's what need" and this was used for transition times.

Our social skills were things like taking deep breaths, not blurting out, etc. I use jula cook books those. And then for blurting/ deep breaths I did a baking soda vinegar volcano in a vase (we take deep breaths so we don't explode). Boy did those kinders remember how to stop and take a deep breath after that.

I also use a lot of little videos-- there are some great ones on you tube-- and we can discuss. Then I like them to maybe draw their thought or reaction or turn and talk to a partner or read with a puppet, etc. if time. In the second half of the year we did stations with things like typing and partner reading and the kids loved that.

I had laryngitis too much last year so I ended up prerecording my reading some books with my phone camera and then put the video on the powerpoint. This was helpful because I could then read the story to the kids while I also went and helped refocus kids and so forth and also not worry about my voice getting lost mid book.

We did coloring pages for the parts of a book after we had a puppet show on it and a discussion-- the kids liked that one. Care of books we watched a video-- don't let the pigeon--- it was a librarian made one on youtube.

Thank you for taking the time to write. I will use my puppet for the lessons. Great idea. I think your chant is great. THanks!

Author/Illustrator

I find that Kindergarteners often have trouble distinguishing author and illustrator. We are talking about how an author and illustrator work as a team to make a book. It leads into us discussing characters and how the illustrator draws the characters the author writes about. Check with their teachers to see what they are learning in class and maybe you can piggyback off them. For example, if they are learning about apples, read a story to them about Johnny Appleseed. Good luck!
