In Moses Brown’s lower school library, first graders expand their ability to find books, understand different genres and kinds of books, and of course, hear lots and lots of stories.
Through picture books and text-only read-alouds, our lower school librarian introduces children to a wide variety of authors and genres, including folk tales, riddles, nonfiction, and poetry. In the spring, visiting authors come to class to talk about the process of writing, illustrating, and publishing books, giving children firsthand experience with writing role models.
Naturally, the library staff also helps students select books to support the growth and enjoyment of their reading, fostering a love of literature for scholarship and pleasure. They also coordinate with first grade teachers to understand each child’s reading facility, and guide kids to ‘just right’ books that provide the appropriate level of challenge to build both skill and confidence.Inquire
