Small Community and a Library Learning Commons

One of the benefits of working in a small school is that everyone is acquainted with each other; Kindergarteners wave to 8th graders when passing in the hallways. Before holiday breaks, the LLC opens its doors and invites teachers to bring students in to participate in various activities. This year the day before Thanksgiving break, we had numerous classes come in and work together. Activities include many curricular areas such as reading, writing, and math. Students created thank you cards for veterans, read stories aloud to each other, solved computer generated puzzles, played board games, watched fairy tale skits put on by 8th grade, made videos of what they are thankful for and other activities. Staff had the opportunity to interact with students they do not normally see. It was nice to see kids settle into an activity of choice and collaborate with another student they may rarely see. We also had the entire 3/4 grade using teamwork to problem solve the game Breakout Edu.They did not open the box this time, but learned some valuable lessons to try the game again in the future.

Our school has a lot to be thankful for and the mood of the students demonstrated this. Enjoy the photos.
