NEWS FROM THE RGS LIBRARY
With libraries closed and lots of time at home, it pains me to not be able to gets books into the hands of your students, so I am continuing to compile ebook, audiobook and animated book sources that you can use. Please reach out to me if you need any instruction on how to use the following sources.
Nippersink Public Library
Nippersink Public Library is offering access to their ebook collection even if you do not have a valid library card. A mobile number and a name is needed to sign up. Here's the link to their online offerings!
Junior Library Guild
Junior Library Guild is also providing free ebooks for elementary school students during this time. There are some great nonfiction choices for all ages. Some fiction that I would recommend for K-1 are books by Chris Van Dusen and Mo Willems. For 2nd & 3rd, Bink and Gollie and The Terrible Two are good shorter chapter books and for 4th and 5th grade Save Me a Seat and A Snicker of Magic are good choices. I even found a Minecraft book! The Junior Library Guild can be found here!
Epic has great fiction and nonfiction books, videos and audiobooks that the students will recognize. For our older students, they have I Survived and 39 Clues as audiobooks! It looks like they are now offering parents free accounts, but if you would like me to add your student to my account just send me an email. Check them out!
Our School has a subscription to TumbleBookLibrary which is an online collection of e-books and animated books for children.
Recommendations by grade:
- K-1: Robert Munsch books and the Mercy Watson series.
- 2-3: Ivy and Bean and books by Kate DiCamillo
- 4-5: Classics like The Secret Garden
There are also graphic novels available which all grades might enjoy.
Please contact us if you have any questions or are in need of any other resources.
