Each class will be on a rotation allowing students (with their teachers) to come during recess to pick their own library book. Each child gets to choose a book that they will be able to keep at home for 3 weeks. Our librarians help them choose age and level appropriate books. Parents, please ask your children about the book they chose and encourage them to read it to you. We believe participation in this process will help reinforce their role in learning here at Ecole du Samedi.
Children in the Bébé & Moi and Bout'chous may visit the library with their parents before or after class.
