January Flex Lessons

Below are the Flex Lessons we have for January. We welcome you to stop by and sign up. If you are new to the building, our flex lessons are 30 minute lessons centered around seasonal themes and imbedded with curriculum objectives. The lessons are led by your library media specialists but we ask you to participate as well. If you are interested in participating please stop by the library and sign up in our plan books on the circulation counter. Please write the lesson title, along with your name. Please sign up for only one flex lesson per week. When scheduling a lesson please allow 24 hours before we present the lesson. This allows other classes to participate and leaves time for collaboration. Once you are signed up you will receive a calendar notification to attend with your class. This serves as a reminder to assure you don't miss your scheduled lesson.

Kindergarten - Sight Word Bingo & Martin Luther King Jr.

First Grade - Martin Luther King Jr. & Nonfiction Research

2nd Grade - Martin Luther King Jr. & Story Elements

Library Loot Bucks

When your class earns 10 library bucks for awesome library behavior, please stop by and sign up for their one hour reward party. This can be done in our flex books on the counter. Be sure to write your name and label the block "Library Reward."


One of our building SMARTgoals is collaboration with a Media Specialist or Instructional Tech to create four enhanced technology lessons for the school year. Mrs. Swenson and I are ready to collaborate. You may sign up in our plan books on the counter or send us an email to schedule a meeting to discuss lesson ideas. Several of our flex lessons can be further extended into a collaborative lesson. Stop by to learn more!
