Kindergarten & First Grade: Snow Day at the Library

Kindergarten and First Grade students come to the Library to celebrate snow and art by studying the Caldecott winning book The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. They will learn about animal tracks by participating in an animal track journey around the children’s department which will introduce them to the various book collections in the section. We will look at similarities and differences between types of texts. This program lasts approximately one hour.

This field trip meets the RLK.7, RIK.9 & RI1.9 (OEUs 2 & 3) Common Core Standards.

Getting library cards and/or checking out books are not a requirement to visit the library for a field trip. 

Library cards may be obtained for your students if desired. The School Age Librarian will email you the application, along with important details about how to get the cards. If you choose to check out books, add 30 minutes to the amount of time you plan to stay at the library.

All library programs are free and school-age programs are taught by a professional librarian. Classrooms consisting of more than one grade may attend the program of their choice and the program will be appropriately modified. Please ask us if you would like help combining this fieldtrip with a stop at another downtown Appleton destination.
