The Maxxis Collection has finally arrived and we are sooo excited for the kids to dig in! I put this display up this afternoon, and already the books are flying off the shelves! If you aren't familiar with the Maxxis Collection or who Maxxis is, you can click here to read about it. Check out all these wonderful book titles...I'm sure Maxxis would approve!
Meanwhile, the new holiday bookshelf display is up and ready for reading...so come on by the library and take a peek! We have something for everyone!
And speaking of something for everyone...the Cubelets are here and the Hour of Code is upon us! This Friday our kids will try out some of the fabulous coding games offered by Hour of Code as well as playing Code Combat and creating robots out of cubes. The Hour of Code is a global movement to introduce students to computer science, and runs during Computer Science Week, December 4th-10th. You can learn more about it here...in fact, you can even start playing the games if you like. Just click on "try it" and pick a game. You don't even need to register, and the best part is, you can play any time...not just during Computer Science Week! And check out all the places participating across the globe...if you zoom in close enough, you can even see Stove Prairie on the map! :)
A HUGE THANKS goes out to everyone that put together the Winter Festival! It was a huge success, and everyone had a great time! Our 2/3 kids created flipgrids inviting folks to stop by the festival and I shared it on Facebook, but forgot to share it here. So, even though the festival is over, if you'd like to see the videos, click here for the link! And that about catches us up on everything here...see you in the halls!
I will be blogging about our weekly adventures in Media and Technology, so be sure to visit often! We're always doing something cool! :)
