Public Library Access

Don't forget to use the databases on the public library for free! Book Flix is now available through the public library along with Tumblebooks, which are interactive read-aloud books. For research, use Pebble Go, Kids Info Bits, and World Book.


Go to www.hepl.lib.in.us

Click on "resources" at the top

Then "online databases"

The good ones for us are under "general research" and "books, magazines, and newspapers"

Then put in the Sand Creek Code if needed!

Collaboration Corner

This month we have continued to stay busy in the library. Many of you have used lots of the new titles to use for read alouds and teaching important skills. If you ever need a basket of books pulled, let me know! Other exciting collaborative activities:


  • Mrs. Lanane's class went on a fall leaf hunt and used iPads to listen to stories.
  • Mrs. Glenesk and Miss Coffman are starting a big project on Native Americans and allowed me to organize the project!
  • 2nd and 3rd graders studies our community and invited Mr. Mayor Elect, Scott Fadness in to talk about a mayor's role.
  • 3rd graders are making Box City's! This included the students filling out a job application with me and then having an election in their class for Mayor!
  • 1st Graders are making their own non-fiction class book to work on Non-Fiction Text Features.
