Letter to First Grade Teachers.
Hello First Grade Teachers,
Teachers explanation of what the field trip opportunity is and its connection to standards.
Experiential visit for 1st graders to begin understanding that "Reading is Fun" and "We are all readers in different and similar ways. The public library connects you with your community throughout your life. The programs, materials, and events at their community library are for everyone to enjoy."
Each visit will include: (1) children’s department tour (2) story time with the library, reading book theme (3) browsing and check-out of one item per student.
