Curriculum Overview

 

The elementary library program at The Churchill School promotes a love of reading, inspires curiosity, and cultivates the skills that are necessary for critical thinking and lifelong learning. The library provides a warm, welcoming environment with a rich diversity of materials (picture books, chapter books, audiobooks, age-appropriate magazines, reference books and more!) so that students can pursue both academic and personal interests.

Lower elementary students enjoy weekly library classes that encourage creativity and independent reading. Students are exposed to a wide variety of literature, authors, and genres through storytelling and follow-up activities.

Upper elementary students learn how to navigate and evaluate print and online resources as they utilize new technology for research. The librarian collaborates with classroom teachers to incorporate library resources and skills into classroom curricula, with particular emphasis on developing research strategies and information literacy.

 

Borrowing Policies

 

All elementary students are given time to browse and borrow on a weekly basis.

  • Cluster A students are encouraged to borrow one book at a time for a one week period.
  • Cluster B, C and D students are encouraged to borrow a total of two books at a time for a two week period.

Parents, please help your daughter or son to return library books on time so that she/he may continue to check out new books on a weekly basis. 

*Parents are also encouraged to stop in the library and create a Parent Library Card in order to check out additional materials.
