• Reading Adventures are here!

    Posted by Tracy Bell on 3/31/2020

    As promised, I created an online storytime.  I am still working on getting the footage uploaded to the online platform that I have selected.  Never fear, poetry is here!  To kick off Poetry Month, I was able to post our first reading adventure using Voki.com.  Please view the Reading Adventures tab to hear a few funny poems.  I decided to submit updates in this blog format.  I hope this is helpful.  Please come back often!

    Welcome to the Glenwood Elementary School Library Media Center, also known as The Hub!

    As we enter into a time of extended learning, please visit the Glenwood Hub Online for a growing list of resources and services for your student.  I've always had wonderful digital resources listed on every link on the Library tab.  However, this list will continue to grow throughout this current extended learning experience.  This school year, I introduced Biblionasium to 4th graders.  This resource is a fun, reading-focused social network for kids ages 6-13.   Biblionasium connects students in an encouraging community of friends, family and their educators.  Biblionasium excites, engages and encourages a love of the written word (direct excerpts from Biblionasium).  This subscription is integrated with Destiny Online Catalog.  I would like to use this extended learning time to get the entire learning community onboard with this powerful resource.  I am working on posting online tutorials to help all parents and students to access this resource.  I am exploring the best platform to present Biblionasium without face to face instruction.  In the meantime, please feel free to use the wonderful resources that are readily available.  Of course, if you happen to know a 4th grader, please ask them about accessing Biblionasium.  :-)

    4th and 5th graders:  Please note that the LitCon Book Mark contest has been extended!  At this point, I do not have a due date.  Please keep working on those beautiful book marks.  I will keep you posted!

    I will have online book sharing times starting on Tuesday, March 31!  Check out the Digital Resources page for a growing list of resources!

    Keep on Reading!

    The Glenwood Elementary School (GES) Library Media Center supports and enhances the school's curriculum by establishing a learning environment that facilitates access to resources and services that addresses the learning styles and needs of all members within the learning community. Our goal is to have literature and resources that foster equity and diversity. 
    GES library media center operates on a comprehensive 21st Century library media program with an open flexible schedule that encourages student and staff usage throughout the day. This flexible access model promotes equitable usage of physical and virtual library resources with collaboration among all teachers and staff to design, implement and evaluate inquiry and project-based lessons.

    You may ask, "How many books may I check out at one time?" 

    Kindergarten = 1 book through January; 2 books from January until the end of the school year.  Please note:  All kindergarten students will start the year checking out one book per visit.  In January, students will be able to check out a total of 2 books.

    1st and 2nd Grade = 2 books 

    3rd = 3 books

    4th Grade = 4 books

    5th Grade = 5 books

    Please keep in mind that all students may come more than one time per day and throughout the week! Book circulation begins at 7:25 and ends at 2:15 pm.
