Library Learning Commons

What's new in the LLC!

John Wilson Library has been a busy place!  Mrs. Charlton and Mrs. Green have been working hard getting new books added into the collection.  There are so many great books to read! 

Fridays have become activity days in the library; we have made ‘Creepy Underwear’, Remembrance Day poppies, dinosaurs for Dino-vember, and Gnome bookmarks for Christmas!  Along with the crafts, we have reviewed the parts of the book and how to find the books “address” (location) in the library.  The students are getting really good at finding the books on their own!

November in libraries is commonly referred to as Dino-vember!  It allows librarians to feature their dinosaur books and share dinosaur information.  This year, we read Chick-a- saurus Rex with all the grades.  We learned that the chicken is the closest living relative to the Tyrannosaurus Rex!  So, essentially we solved the mystery of ‘dino-nuggets’! LOL!  

This week has been extra exciting as two Elves, Jingles and Jangles, arrived.  It seems one may be a bit naughty, so it will be interesting to see what shenanigans they will be up to!  We have noticed an increase in foot traffic as the students are finding an excuse to come check out the Elves!  

Mrs. Charlton and Mrs. Green would like to wish all of our John Wilson Family a Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year!

The LLC - Library Learning Commons

Our Library Learning Commons is used by students from Pre-K to grade 12 and is considered an i-Campus resource. Students have the opportunity to learn how to use the library and all that is has to offer.

At the elementary level, students work with our librarians learn to find "good fit books" to help foster a love of reading. They are given time to search, borrow and spend some time reading in the library. Every class is ended with a story read aloud by our librarians.

Our library also hosts many themed activities throughout the year, also highlighting special books to celebrate the occasion.

Destiny is the program that we use throughout Chinooks Edge School Division, and students can look up available books and resources.
