Welcome to Mrs. Kehl's Media Center page. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to the library!
I began teaching at Royersford Elementary School in 2000. I earned my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Elizabethtown College. I obtained my Master's Degree in Education from Cabrini College and certification in Library Science from Kutztown University.
I am excited to work with you and your child this school year! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. And remember to...READ! READ! READ!

Kindergarten students come in once every six day cycle for a story and book exchange. Students choose their books from a shelf geared for kindergarten students only. Selections include wordless picture books, early readers, Disney favorites, and non-fiction books. Books change throughout the year.
Students receive a "library book bag" provide by the librarian to transport their library books in. This helps to develop responsibility as well as keep the book dry in the event of wet conditions. If a bag is lost or damaged, please replace the bag making sure to write the student's name and teacher on the outside.
In addition to learning to care for library books, first grade students learn to use placesavers when looking for books. Students learn how to recognize authors and illustrators on the cover of books. They also learn the difference between fiction and non-fiction books and their location on the shelves. First grade students are emerging as readers and are introduced to beginning chapter books.
In addition to learning to care for library books, second grade students are reminded of the importance of using placesavers when looking for books. Students are expected to follow appropriate school behavior while in the media center.
Second grade students are learning the difference between fiction and non-fiction books and their location on the shelves. The biography section is introduced. Students develop favorite authors and illustrators. Students are introduced to the reference section, including dictionaries, thesauruses, and encyclopedias.
Second grade students are developing skills to become better readers and are introduced to beginning chapter books. We discuss selecting books based on the "five finger" rule, as well as just right read books.
Goals for third grade students include an emphasis on library procedures, searching for library books with DESTINY, knowing the parts of a book, experiencing various genres of literature, learning the Dewey Decimal System, and an introduction to research materials. Students complete mini-research projects during library classes. Students also complete a test to become "Destiny Detectives." Destiny detectives have successfully completed a test using Destiny to locate a fiction and non-fiction book AND finding it on the shelves.
Goals for fourth grade students include an emphasis on library procedures, searching for library books with DESTINY, knowing the parts of a book, experiencing various genres of literature, learning the Dewey Decimal System, and an introduction to research materials. Students complete mini-research projects during library classes.
Students are encouraged to read for pleasure. We review selecting just right read books, as well as continue working on the "five finger" rule. Students may select 2 library books per cycle.
Classes visit the media center once every 6-day cycle for formal library lessons, and an additional 6 days for their "bonus" library day.
- Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students may check out 1 book per cycle.
- Third and Fourth Grade students may check out 2 books per cycle.
