Quiet Time Poem:


Alan Katz book: Are Your Quite Polite:

When You're In the Library
Quiet is the Way to Be
Please Talk Softly
Make the Choice
Only use your indoor voice
Libraries are full of joys
But they can't be full of noise
Someone is a bit to loud (getting louder)
We don't need a one kid crowd
I won't beat round the bush
Please be still won't you shush
I will have to ring this bell
And I'm going to start to YELL (quite loud but not yet yelling)
NOW I'M SCREAMING NOISE MUST CEASE
WE ALL WANT TO WORK IN PEACE
SILENCE NOW LETS BE CALM
DON'T MAKE ME TELL YOUR MOM
QUIET IN THE LIBRARY (yelling now)!!!
oops the noisy one is me (whispering)


Let Me Have Your Attention Songs:


"I am happy to see you,
Thanks for visiting me,
Welcome to the library
Where voices are hushed and eyes
are up front to look
Now...sit down and listen to this lovely book!"
OR
"We are ready
Our eyes are straight ahead
Our hands are to ourselves
Now...Please read us a book from one of the shelves"
