Blackboard Update
The new Blackboard Library Pages for use at home and at school are exciting new educational tools that make learning even more fun and accessible!  Here is a short list of the many things available to our families:
•    Two library sites – Kidzone is for students in preschool through the fourth grade and Teenzone is for students in Grades 5-8.  The links in each are very similar but are age appropriate.
•    Our youngest students can experience the fun of learning with educational videos, age-appropriate digital and print books that are read to them, and wonderful educational games and activities.
•    Access to our Library Researcher – Students can now check online to see what books are available in their school library.  They will eventually be able to put books on hold from home.  As if that is not enough, students and parents will also be able to access book descriptions and book reviews online!
•    Research sites including BrainPop, dictionary, thesaurus, Pebble Go Science, Discovery Education, Gale and safe research sites.
•    Research tools for students that will help them with writing bibliographies, organizing a research paper, links to search engines, printable tools and links to local public libraries.
•    Hundreds of digital and video books including links to apps for Kindle and Nook!
•    Links to all the Renaissance Learning Products such as Home Connect and AR Bookfind, as well as Parent Guides to AR and AM.
•    Many links to student-oriented current events and periodicals as well as a ton of links to children’s authors.
•    Last, but definitely not least, links to hundreds of educational games and activities.
We encourage you to log on to Blackboard ( and check out the Kidzone and/or the Teenzone today!
