Second Grade

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, students will learn how to make "Biography Stew" and will create biography hats using books to research an important person of his or her choosing.  Using the OPAC to search for library books by title, author and subject makes it easier to find exactly what you are looking for in the library.  Students will be introduced to the OPAC this month.  
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 Dewey Decimal system for nonfiction books.  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:

ABC order of Fiction Books
How to access "Keyboarding Without Tears". We will continue our use of the program.
We will read:
Fall Books
Halloween stories
