Library Classes

Library classes began today with 6S, 4J, 3M, and 2J. 6S, 4J, and 3M selected books and explored the Big Bend Library webpage. 2J learned about the 5-finger reading test, selected books, and learned how to change their network passwords.

In addition, during their scheduled Library Lab time (classroom teacher and myself present):

  • 6S also completed a TRAILS assessment that focuses on information literacy. 
  • 4J began their All About Me posters using MS Word.
  • 3M began working on their cover sheet for their Writer's Workshop book using MS Word.
  • 2J explored TumbleBooks.
What a great 1st day of classes in the Library Technology Center!

Looking forward to another awesome year at Big Bend Elementary. We have made a "timely" addition to the Library Technology Center. I can't wait to see what the students think.
