The Hour of Code kicked off our first coding lesson in the library. Students in grades 1-5 learned the basics of Computer Science! Through coding, students are creating, problem solving, and critically thinking, all while having fun. We are all very excited and look forward to this new addition to our library curriculum!

Historical Fiction

Students learned about life on the Oregon Trail by reading this humorous historical fiction tale about a dedicated father and his brave daughter as they travel cross country in search of a better life. We encourage students to read historical fiction books to experience the past, learn more about historical events, and understand the struggles people have faced throughout history.

We also read folktales from around the world: The Giant Carrot from Russia, The Empty Pot from China, Abiyoyo from South Africa, and Why Mosquitoes Buzz In People's Ears from West Africa.

Read Across America

Students celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday by visiting Seuss stations in the library. They traveled to different destinations at Oh, The Places You'll Go, created whimsical, wacky, Seuss-like creations in the Dr. Seuss MakerSpace station, and participated in digital storytelling in the Horton Hears An Audiobook station.
