You know how you forget stuff when you get back to school from the holidays? This morning one of our little kindergarteners was standing outside the library doors when the school nurse found him. He was huffing and puffing, and almost ready to have a fit! She asked him what he was doing and he said nothing. She asked if he needed to bring in a library book and brought him in. He did, indeed, need to return his book and retrieve a new one. Apparently, he forgot how to go to the library!
We've trained all of our students how to independently come to the library (smaller kids come in groups of 2 or 3) to check in and out their books. They come in throughout the day, and my aide and I just LOVE seeing motivated readers. Hopefully, the coming weekend doesn't further contribute to memory loss in my little babies!
