Butler-Spencer Library: Academics

MICDS Lower School Library Resources

Academics

All Beasley students visit the Library weekly to check-out books and practice library skills.

Lower School Library curriculum includes:

Using online research tools to search for appropriate reading materials.

Engaging in projects which promote creativity, reading, and problem solving.

Building community and listening skills through read-aloud with the Librarian.

 

 

Interested in helping your students become successful readers?  Here are a few tips from MICDS Librarians to help them along the way:

 

Read aloud to your students.

Reading aloud builds positive reading relationships, models proper linguistic skills, and increases your child's vocabulary.  Reading aloud also fosters a love for learning and reading.

 

Help your children find books that are 'just-right' for them. 

Communicate about their reading interests, and reach out to teachers and librarians for further assistance with proper reading levels. 

 

Check into local public libraries for access to books during summer months.

Ensuring that your students have proper reading materials during the summer months will allow them to continue building skills outside of school.
