Reading! Technology! Fun!
Hard to believe it is already DECEMBER! In November, the Learning Commons hosted a very successful Book Fair (THANK YOU), Immigration Station with 5th grade, South Carolina Children's Book Award Nominee Book Talks with 3rd - 5th grade, Library Catalog lessons with 1st and 2nd grade, and so much MORE! In December, we are looking forward to looking for the Gingerbread Man with Kindergarten classes, learning about Scratch and Kerpoof in Media Technology, and whatever else YOU NEED! Please let your Learning Commons Team know what we can do for you!
