Library and Computer Lab
Thanks to the PTO, our library is stocked with more than 5,000 books ranging from beginning readers to advanced non-fiction. Students come to the library weekly as part of their class, during which time they check out books, do printed and/or online research, and hear books read aloud.
Our library works in partnership with the Sacramento Public Library; our students have access to e-cards, which allow students full online access to SPL research sites such as several Gale databases, Academic One File, U.S. History in Context, and General One File to name a few.
Teachers utilize the computer lab to integrate the use of technology into content-area instruction. Our computer carts are mobile, so many teachers extend the use of technology into the classroom.
Many students have made good use Sacramento Public Library e-cards and various online databases that can help them with research projects. For instruction on how to use the e-cards, please email me (email@example.com).
Additionally, the American Library Association has put together a website that directs students to many different websites that are excellent for research. The address is: http://gws.ala.org/ Happy searching!
Second Grade Read-Around
Every November our second-graders will walk to California Middle School with second-graders from Leataata Floyd Elementary School. At the middle school, 2nd graders are read to by Cal students. At the end of the trip, all 2nd graders will receive a free book. The dual purposes of the program are to foster a love of reading and a sense of community.
