Kindies Learning About Wild Rabbits, Winter, Hibernation ... Wondering ...

Bastion kindergarten students are just learning about fiction vs non-fiction in the library.  They have been enjoying "E" Everybody picture books since September, but we are now moving onto
discovery / information books.

We are being detectives looking at book "call numbers" finding the "E" for picture books vs the number and letters for non-fiction information books.  I showed Ss the difference and invited them to sign out a non-fiction book today.

Ask your child if he or she chose an "Everybody Picture Book" or a non-fiction information book.

This week and last we learned about head lice from a storytelling book and an information book:
Story-telling "E" everybody book Bugs in my Hair David Shannon.



the information book Lice are Lousy: All About Headlice by Margaret Tsubakiyama & illustrator Anne Canaveri Geeen

Next week we'll look at wild rabbits (599.32) (rather than domestic ones [636.932) once again through storytelling and information books:
Storytelling book Snowboarding Bunny's: Mountain Adventure by Bonita Forsyth

Nonfiction Welcome to the World of Rabbits and Hares by Diane Swanson


Below are some digital resources to further our learning about Arctic Hares:

The above video got me wondering about what else happens to animals in winter?  
I wanted to know more about hibernation.  
Here's another SciShow Kids video about this topic:

Groundhog Hibernation (3:46)

And that is exactly what happens when we wonder about the world!  Questions pop into our heads & then we go out to find answers from sources such as books, digital resources, magazines, videos, experts, and more.  

While being entertained by a good story is terrific, learning about the world and all of the amazing things in it is also an incredible experience.  

Thanks for learning with me today.  Mme Murrells-Allaway (aka Mme M)
