|For Kindergarten Parents - Winter Library Lesson December 2 – January 24|
For the next 6 weeks, the children will select a Caldecott Medal winning book and share their favorite page with their library group. The procedure will be:
Week one: Lesson about sharing pages and selecting a Caldecott book.
Week two: Return with book and share page. Select another Caldecott book.
Remaining weeks will be the same as week two.
On January 27 we will begin Folktales of the World.
This is a great way to share good literature with your child. Listening to well written reading materials increases comprehension, grammar awareness, and ability to focus on contextual structure.
Please share the book with your child and help him/her select a page that is of great interest. Your child will be asked to say the title and author of a book, show the page to the group and explain why s/he chose it and if it came from the beginning, middle or end of the story. Marking the page with a post-it will make it easier for your child to give the “report”. Information about the Caldecott Medal
can be found on the American Library Association website.
