  • Digital Citizenship with 4th Grade

    Posted by Lori Willis on 10/26/2018

    We've had some great conversations with 4th Grade about what it means to be a good Digital Citizen and about our "rings of responsibility". Check out the graphic below for more information on what that means.

    Rings of Responsibility

    Students were able to give examples of their responsibilites both on and offline for each of the rings. They were then asked to think about the question "Who do we have responsibilities to?" Check out a few of their answers on the boards below. We will continue talking about Digital Citizenship for the next few weeks in the library and it would be great to have follow up conversations at home. I look forward to more great discussions to come!

  • Constitution Day!

    Posted by Lori Willis on 9/18/2018

    Monday September 17, 2018 we celebrated Constitution Day in the Library! All classes and all grade levels participated in fun activities related to the US Constitution. We played a game to understand why rules are important, we discussed why facts are more important than opinions in a court case and we even wrote (and signed!) or own constitution! What a fabulous day we had! Check out some pictures that highlight our day!
