Home » Curriculum Guide » Information/Media » Information/Media – Preprimary (ages 3-6)
							

Preprimary students learn to locate parts of a book and to identify cover, title, author, illustrator, title page, and spine. Each student creates a book that incorporates these elements. Students learn the routines and procedures in the library, the library layout, library, appropriate use and care of library materials, and library terminology. Students learn to self-select books of interest, first from a librarian selected collection and finally from the entire picture book and beginning reader section. Students start with a library scavenger hunt, identifying the different areas of and media in the library. Students also design their personal “spacers” used to save their place on a shelf when browsing the collection.

After their 3- and 4-year-old classmates return to the classroom, Kindergarten students remain in the library and learn how to check out books and develop the ability to listen and respond to selected material.  They learn to interpret both what they have seen and what they have heard, and gain practice in articulating those interpretations. While guidance is provided for specific requests and the librarian is always available to provide suggestions, an important part of the learning process is for the child to develop the confidence to explore the shelves and make their own decisions.
