Burnside's Library Buzz

Spring, 2016

April is School Library Month

What's Happening in the Library

The library has been buzzing this spring as we celebrated reading and project based learning. Third-fifth grade students have started getting used to their laptops while learning about famous African American leaders. They researched careers of the future and shared their presentations during the career fair. Kindergarten and Second Grade classes formed reading buddy partnerships to celebrate Read Across America Day. Many of our classes learned that schools are similar as they video conferenced with classes from Texas, New York, and Pennsylvania during Read Around the Planet.

Makerspace is Here

If you have come in the library lately, chances are you will see students engaged in a variety of activities. Makerspace is a place for students to create, invent, and learn. During weekly library classes, students create bookmarks, build new vehicles, play educational games and solve puzzles. Check out some of our Knex creations.
