KHMS Library Flight Plan

Dec 2021

Anyone, anywhere can learn to code!

Join us in the library for opportunities to code with favorite characters from Minecraft, Star Wars, Angry Birds, Frozen, and more!

Students (& teachers) are invited to bring their chromebooks to the library before school or during the day to complete their hour of code.

Teachers, if you would like to collaborate on an hour of code with your class - let me know! We even have unplugged lessons in coding.

Lessons in the Library

MIdweek Makerspace Opportunities

All activities are available before school and during advisory/lunch

Students must join the Library Canvas class to have access to the sign up form. This can be done with an email to Mrs. Howk (, stopping by the library and signing in with their username, or using the code at the bottom of this newsletter.

Digital Spotlight


You've heard of Discovery Education and BrainPop as resources for multimedia, but have you checked out Learn360? This resource is available from TexQuest and lives on the TexQuest page within our Library Applications folder.
Teachers and students have access to videos, printable maps and flags, audio resources (including audiobooks), lesson printables, Mailbox magazine, STEM lessons and more!

Using the advanced search allows teachers to limit by grade level, subject, format, and copyright date. Some resources are even available in other languages.


Use Digital Resources that are Easy to Cite

Steer your students to TexQuest resources for the ease of citing their sources! All resources within TexQuest provide a citation button that gives students a ready-made source citation, in MLA 8th edition and often other formats.

Students need to get in the habit of citing where they get their information & if all they need to do is cut and paste... they are more likely to do it! Let me know if you'd like to schedule a mini lesson on citations for your class - this is applicable to a wide variety of subject areas. I'm also willing to create a flipped video for you to share in class, let's chat!
