Kindergarteners Take Home Books

Today, students in our three kindergarten classes chose their first book to take home. After listening to a story, students talked about how to keep their books safe at home. They learned to:

  • Keep your books in a safe place
  • Keep your books away from babies and pets
  • Don’t write or draw in your book
  • Don’t get your book wet
  • Don’t eat or drink when reading a book

Kindergarteners will return their library books on Wednesdays!
