Welcome to the International School of Tanganyika’s ES Library blog. Here you will find what’s happening in classes in the library and in the library in general. Please check back often and feel free to leave us a message with your ideas, links and good thoughts. Asante!
Hello Grade 5s,
I am interested in finding out how the library has worked for you this year – have you been able to find the information you need (in books and by searching online)? Have you found books you wanted to read? Has Destiny worked well for you? You’ll be able to give me ideas and feedback anonymously, here.
When you’re done, enjoy the library or find out more about a world religion.
🙂 Ms. Karen
HI Grade 4s,
Do you know what a primary source is? A secondary source?
I want you to look at this slideshow to find out. You’ll come back to the pillows ready to tell me 🙂
The greatest poem ever known
Is one all poets have outgrown:
The poetry, innate, untold,
Of being only four years old.
Still young enough to be a part
Of nature’s great impulsive heart,
Born comrade of bird and bee
And unselfconscious as the tree –
And yet with lovely reason skilled
Each day new paradise to build;
Elate explorer of each sense,
Without dismay, without pretense!
In your unstrained transparent eyes
There is no conscience, no surprise:
Life’s queer conundrums you accept,
Your strange divinity still kept.
And life, that sets all things in rhyme,
may make you poet, too, in time-
But there were days, O tender elf,
When you were poetry itself.
As part of their last unit on systems and how systems work, Kinder classes thought about all the systems in the library. They heard stories about the library, talked about their own times in the library, and, after listing some systems, started building their own libraries.
Heard during library play this week —
“You already have 10 books at home, you can’t check out any more.”
“Do you know how to read this book?”
“I’m going to check a graphic novel today.”
“Line up and get ready to check out!”
“Can we read the whole day?”
Great question 🙂
HI Grade 4!
Look at the article I found!
Extraterrestrial means it came from space – not earth.
So – what do you want to know about this? What are you curious about? Get your questions ready, and go to the article. I hope you find the answers!
