2nd grade is studying Fairy tales and folktales. We talked about how the term folktales refers to several different types of stories (fairy tales, fables, and a few others) and what they had in common. We read The Three Billy Goats Gruff, The Three Silly Girls Grubb by John Hassett and The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Mean Cajun Joe by Cathrene Valente Youngquist. We compared the different stories and their similarities and differences. We also talked about points of view of the characters.
This week 3, 4 and 5 are learning about Destiny Quest, our library database. We set up our own Destiny Quest accounts and are able to access some pretty neat features including recommending books to friends, placing holds on books and renewing our own books! Destiny Quest can be accessed through the Cobb Virtual Library website located on the Bullard Home page and from the tab on the Media Blog. Students will need to login through Mackinvia and designate bullardes. The userid will be their student number (also referred to as their lunch number or computer number). The password for CVL is read. Once logged into CVL, Destiny is the very first database. Students can login to DestinyQuest to access their own personal account.
Have a great week and stay warm!
