Books, databases and more....
Looking for mentor texts? If I do not have the specific title you are looking for, I can interlibrary loan the book from another school library or find you another book.

Databases and Research
Every student in kindergarten through fifth grade researches a topic using the WISE (Wonder, Investigate, Synthesize and Express) Inquiry process during their information literacy skills lessons. A big part of this process is investigating the topic. To find adequate information, students must use our subscription databases. We offer a wide range of databases. Databases can also be used to quickly learn about a topic, to locate informational texts or to simply play educational games. Incorporating these essential resources into your projects can easily be accomplished with a quick trip to the Library.
Very excited to share our newest database, BookFlix by Scholastic. You will definitely want to check this database out. BookFlix pairs a fiction book (in a video format) with an informational book.
The screencast below will remind you how to easily access all of our databases. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bxv86yeYBLDQRlpUdTJFbXYxQ3c/view?usp=sharing
