Jar of Happiness

This week has been another busy one! We are finishing up English research papers. It is really fascinating to see the evolution of the research paper from the freshman through to senior year. My favorite aspect of working with the students is hearing about what they have chosen to research and feel their passion on a particular topic. It is great to work one on one with them to help guide them towards solid academic resources and to see them begin to piece together research in a way where they can create something new! We are now moving on to history research projects! Happy to have the history classes in the library.

This week we are read the book The Jar of Happiness / Alisa Burrows in preschool.
Little Meg fills a jar with all the things that make her happy and shares it with friends and family who are feeling glum. Meg loses her jar of happiness and those around her show her that you can find happiness in other ways! The preschoolers have LOVED the story and we have taken time to discuss the things that make us happy! We are going to create our own Jar of Happiness in the library and all next week the preschoolers will add ideas to the jar on what makes them happy! We are hoping it will instill a positive vibe of love and support for the remainder of the year!
