February Flex Lessons

Below are the Flex Lessons we have for February. We welcome you to stop by and sign up. If you are new to the building, our flex lessons are 30 minute lessons centered around seasonal themes and imbedded with curriculum objectives. The lessons are led by your library media specialists but we ask you to participate as well. If you are interested in participating please stop by the library and sign up in our plan books on the circulation counter. Please write the lesson title, along with your name. Please sign up for only one flex lesson per week. When scheduling a lesson please allow 24 hours before we present the lesson. This allows other classes to participate and leaves time for collaboration. Once you are signed up you will receive a calendar notification to attend with your class. This serves as a reminder to assure you don't miss your scheduled lesson.
