February will be a busy month in the library!  First, we'll be getting ready for our Scholastic DINO-MITE Book Fair: Stomp, Chomp, and Read!  We'll read some books by Lisa Funari Willever who will visit PMES on March 1, 2019 and learn all about Dr. Seuss, the man who was the inspiration behind NEA's "Read Across America"!
In January, we'll be reading a funny book called Thomas' Snowsuit by Robert Munsch to teach us about cause and effect.  We'll also learn about "Book Birthdays", biographies and continue with the "Keyboarding Without Tears" program.  
In December we will learn about the winter holidays and listen to a selection of tales from notable authors.  We'll also learn about the difference between fiction and nonfiction.  We will begin use of the "Keyboarding Without Tears" program.

November is Native American Heritage Month!  We'll listen to selections from author Joseph Bruchac and learn about pictographs and sand stories.
In the month of October we will learn:
