Welcome to the Kingsley Montessori School Library!
“The library is a symbol of freedom.”

Hello from the Library!

 

Dear Kingsley Families and Friends,

Thank you so much for supporting the Follett Online Book Fair last month. The earned rewards bought all kinds of books to refresh and update the Early Childhood collection and provide some dearly wished-for books for Exeter teachers. Next fall, everyone will be enjoying beautiful, note-worthy literature because of your participation in this virtual event—so great!

Click here to access the KMS Library website!

Below are some age-specific points of interest - enjoy:

Early Childhood Lower Elementary Upper Elementary

The Early Childhood collection has been thoroughly organized this year - it is now a healthy mix of classics and newer titles, many of which reflect diverse characters and “windows” into other worlds to help widen children’s perspective about our collective humanity. 

*Click here to read a short article about how literature works to broaden our understanding of our human experience. (It is written with older students in mind, but put in the context of young children becomes even more powerful, the idea of using books as building blocks of sorts.)

Elementary students are enjoying the May array of picture books provided through the BPL year long reading challenge, Reading Together, which is here.

*Click here to see what we have read since January! (This doc is available on the Lower El page of the school library website.)

Students are also learning about some other interesting things: student-friendly search engines, accessing kids’ magazines at BPL via the FLIPSTER app, and exploring the National Geographic virtual library housed there, as well. 

 

*All search engine info is housed in your child’s Library folder in Seesaw.
