Kindergarten and First Grade students come to the Library to celebrate snow and art by studying the Caldecott winning book The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. They will learn about animal tracks by participating in an animal track journey around the children’s department which will introduce them to the various book collections in the section. We will look at similarities and differences between types of texts. This program lasts approximately one hour.
This field trip meets the RLK.7, RIK.9 & RI1.9 (OEUs 2 & 3) Common Core Standards.
Getting library cards and/or checking out books are not a requirement to visit the library for a field trip.
Library cards may be obtained for your students if desired. The School Age Librarian will email you the application, along with important details about how to get the cards. If you choose to check out books, add 30 minutes to the amount of time you plan to stay at the library.
All library programs are free and school-age programs are taught by a professional librarian. Classrooms consisting of more than one grade may attend the program of their choice and the program will be appropriately modified. Please ask us if you would like help combining this fieldtrip with a stop at another downtown Appleton destination.
Registration begins January 4. Contact the Children’s Service Desk at 920-832-6187 to register or by filling out this form. You must be registered in order to earn any incentives. Open to children in first, second or third grade.
First, second and third grade students are invited to blast off into the reading atmosphere with some of the best books the library has to offer! Students may read to themselves, read to someone else (including pets or stuffed animals), or listen to someone read to them. The goal is to read 12 books during this time period if you’re in first or second grade and six books if you’re in third grade, then write or dictate a book review for each book. Of these books, at least half should be from the library’s booklists.
While you may choose books from any of the lists, you should be choosing books written at your reading level. Please be sure to include your full name and phone number on every review. Reviews must be turned in all at the same time. Every review will be read by the children’s librarian.
Receive an assortment of small incentive prizes, as well as a drawing entry for a special completion prize. Register and pick up your reading list at the Children’s Services Desk or online. If you have questions, call Ellen, the school-age librarian, at 920-832-6020 or email email@example.com.
