School Libraries Learn at Home

Hello Mini-Cat Families, this is a school library link that has resources students can use to keep up with their reading and classwork. An explanation of the links and how to use them are listed below. Students can stay in touch with Mrs. Edwards if they have a question by going to ask the librarian link.
Thanks and stay well
  • there is a section for Read Alouds-- 2x per day for ES and 1x for MS/HS (chapter book or short story collections).  These are live sessions that will be done via Google Hangouts (all students should have access to Hangouts during a closure with their Google account).  If a closure is announced, I'll send directions about signing up to provide one of the live read alouds.  There is also a list of recorded read alouds from publishers, authors, etc for 24/7 on-demand access
  • there is a section for eBooks with access to MackinVia, MyON and CCPL
  • there is a section for Exploring  that has a list of resources available through Clever
  • there is a section for Spring Reading Challenge- with a Bingo board style challenge for ES and for MS/HS
  • there is a section for Sharing Reading Recommendations- with Flipgrids for ES, MS, and HS
  • there is a section for Ask Your Librarian with a list of contacts for the TLs at each school.  If a closure is announced, you'll be able to add your "office hours" to provide help with research, recommendations, for kids at your school
  • there are additional links to CCSD, CCPL, VOCAL and Teacher Resources
