Ridgetop Middle School Library

School Closure - - - What can you do to have fun and keep learning?

  1. Read a book! Search for an e-book and read from your Chromebook or phone. See our e-book page for more details.
  2. Search for new books to read. Not sure what to read next? Check out our book awards page to get some ideas on what might be the next great read. Many of these books are available to you on Sora.
  3. Design a 3D object. Give Tinkercad a try. If you haven't gotten an account set up with Mrs. Robinson or one of your other teachers, ask your parents for permission to create an account on Tinkercad.com. Under "learn" you can access the starters to learn how to use the program, then start designing. You can email your finished designs to Mrs. Robinson for 3D printing when we return to school.
  4. Make a video. If you don't have video editing software on your phone or home computer, and your class hasn't tried WeVideo yet, you can email Mrs. Robinson to be added to our school WeVideo account. It's super easy to use and a lot of fun to create your own videos. Contact Mrs. Robinson at jenniferro@ckschools.org.
  5. Share your book recommendations. If you have read a book that you'd like to recommend to other students, email Mrs. Robinson @jenniferro@ckschools.org and let me know the title, author, and what you liked about the book. If I have some student recommendations to use, I will add it to the library website.
  6. Learn to code. Go to Code.org and choose learn. You can try some lessons without an account, but if you decide to make an account to save your work, make sure to get your parents' permission first.
