Media Center Bulletin

News from the UES Media Center for Staff

Happy 2016!

Hello UES! I am so excited to begin 2016 with you! I hope to put out a newsletter at least once a month letting you know what is going on in the Media Center. If team leaders could shoot me an email every once in a while to let me know what you are working on in science and social studies that would be great! I like to plan my lessons so I can integrate what the kids are learning with you.

127 new Capsone ebooks!

These books are ready to read! Topics include: Map skills, Revolutionary War, Forces and Motion, Matter, Life Cycles, American Symbols, Biographies, Community Helpers, Fairy Tales and much more! There are even a few Spanish titles!

These ebooks are so great because you can have them up on your screen and read to the whole class, use them as centers, in reading groups or have all students simultaneously reading one in the labs! Features include choices of word highlighting and an actual human voice reading.

Get to them by scrolling down off the media center homepage to the Capstone Interactive Library icon, click on it and type in Username: ues Password: read

Let me know if you have suggestions for more topics!
