Students visit the GVES library once per week to check out leisure reading books. During their time in the library, they also hear a read-aloud and have the opportunity to participate in a variety of maker stations. Our maker stations are rotated monthly and provide experiences with construction, science, art, and games. Students must return their old books and check out new books in order to participate in maker stations.
The library is also open to any student from 8:45-9:00 every morning for students who miss their book exchange class or who would just like to check out some fresh reading.
Students visit the library classroom once per week to learn about responsible use of information and digital citizenship. Students will also participate in independent research at a wide variety of centers using the skills they learn in class.
Typing skills are practiced using Typing Club to help students build their speed and accuracy to recommended levels. This aids them in their ability to access and utilize digital informational resources.
