Prep visit the library on Tuesdays and Thursdays. In each of the lessons we do lots of different things. We start by walking down from Prep in a very long line, like a caterpillar with arms to carry our library bags full of books. We return our books in the big grey box, sit on the mat and listen to a story.
On Tuesdays, we have looked at books about monsters, sloths, cows, pigeons and dinosaurs. On Thursdays, we have just finished a unit with books about dogs and are starting a new unit with books about bears. There are so many wonderful books it is often hard to choose which ones to read. In our lessons we share our ideas in a circle and almost always get to sing or dance. Our favourite song this term has been about animals with lots of actions and sounds. Then, we choose new books to borrow and read, play or create. Once we have chosen our books, had them scanned and stamped we put them in our bags and usually get to hear one more story before heading back to Prep.
We love being read to! Thank you for reading our library books with us at home.
