Picture of Weaver's Librarians



The BWE Library…

The library is a busy and exciting place to be!  Books are being checked out all day by classes as well as individual students who have finished books and need new ones.  Student book reviews are shared through Flipgrid to encourage additional peers to read them and elevate student voice. Digital citizenship is a topic that is covered across each grade level. Students are also busy learning how to best use the internet by researching self-chosen topics and Project Based Learning (PBL) ideas.


The Wonder Area...

The Wonder Area continues to be a spot of exploration and learning.  You’ll find Lego building and challenges, Straws and Connectors, Roller Coaster Game, Think Fun’s Coding Games, Snap Circuits, Little Bits, and much, much more.  The Hour of Code was a huge success again this year as all students at Bettie Weaver participated.  One of our favorite experiences was having fifth graders work with kindergarten students to learn how to code using some of the beginning levels on code.org/learn.  The Wonder Area is a great place to see learning come to life!
