Blogger New Look

Hi Kids,

I have begun the work of changing the library blog to make it useful for you.  I have added some new literature links on the right.  I have also changed some of the book suggestions.  Don't forget that you can click on them to see a trailer or related information.  I am always looking for new ideas for websites that are perfect for children.  So, if you have any ideas let me know.

We are continuing our work on internet safety this week. Some fun internet safety links are on the lower left. 

Don't forget to keep reading!!!

October Already!?!

What a fantastic month we had in September.  I can't believe that October has arrived so quickly.  First through fifth graders are all checking out books and the Kindergarten and TK classes have begun to come into the Media Center.  
October in the Media center means the beginning of learning about internet safety.  All students will be learning how to stay safe, responsible, and respectful when online.  They are all excited about using computers and know that this unit means the beginning of some fun and meaningful computer activities in the library.  

Here are some amazing links for adults when helping your families with online safety:

Netsmartz at
                     This is a wonderful site for watching videos on internet safety concerns.  Also contains games and suggestions for learning internet safety in a fun way.
 Common Sense Media
                      I often use this site as a parent to learn what movies, videos, etc. are fine for my children.  Also a great site for suggestions on technology and other forms of media.

Have a fun October and safe searching!!
