Signing up for Media Times
Media Center Computers (17 desktops available)
Lessons w/ Ms. Stetson (please indicate in the notes section what you'd like help with)
- There is a new CHECK IN station in the media center! Please scan any books you are returning on the computer right above the "Bookie Monster" before putting them in the return slot.
- In the morning all students MUST report to their class first and ask permission to visit the media center. Please have them bring a Library Pass with them so we know they have permission. If you need library passes, email me, and I'll put some in your mailbox.
- All grades - If you have media scheduled for the day please have your students bring the books they want to return with them to class. We'll allow time for check in at the beginning of class and time for check out at the end of class.
- Teachers, you may sign up for a time slot to bring your whole class to exchange books by visiting our website (http://aresmedia.weebly.com/media-center-sign-up.html), clicking on Circulation, and selecting a time.
NC Wise Owl
NC Wise Owl got a face lift!! It will look totally different when you click on the link... but don't worry... it still has all the same awesome resources!
If you are not familiar with it, or always forget we have it, NC Wise Owl is AWESOME!
This site is free for any student, teacher, or parent in North Carolina and gives you access to some great FREE resources. If you or your students are at school there is no login needed. At home the password is wiseowl15. Each month we'll highlight one of the resources found at www.ncwiseowl.org.
This month's spotlight is on.... America the Beautiful (GO)!
America the Beautiful is part of the Grolier Online resources. When you click on the link it will take you and your students to a map of the United States. From there you can click on any state and it will take you to an article about that state. Each article contains the following sections: Introduction, History, Geography, Economy, Culture, Government, Cities, Spotlights, Profiles, Timeline, Word Find, What Do You Know?, Project Ideas, and Further Reading. There are also Fast Facts, Pictures and Maps for each state. Grolier also offers a Teacher Resource section that has a Teachers' Guide, Activites, and Organizers. Talk about a great resource for doing state research!
