May 11, 2015: Library

The TIS annual Scholastic book fair will be held the first week in June outside Stearns Hall.  This is a good time to get books for summer reading! Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering.

During library class, the Kinders have been introduced to different types of books and genres (folktale, fantasy, science fiction, informational, mystery, poetry).  It is great to see the students' enthusiasm for different types of literature.

We are also working on making story maps and doing book reports.  Here are some samples of our work:


Summer is fast approaching!  Please make sure your child returns all his or her library books at the end of this month, May.  Invoices for books lost or damaged during the school year will be sent home in early June.  Also look for information on this year's summer reading challenge to come home at the end of the month, or visit the TIS Library website for information. It is so important for kinders to participate in preparation for first grade and English classes!
