Welcome to Rowayton Elementary School's Learning Commons!
OUR LIBRARY at Rowayton Elementary School is quickly becoming the hub of the building. OUR GOAL is to instill a love of learning, inspire life-long learning, foster independent library use and create a culture of the 4 C's - collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity. Students visit once every 4 days and rotate between a traditional library class that includes book check out and learning information literacy skills and a makerspace library class that includes hands-on STEM activities and digital citizenship skills. The library is evolving at a rapid rate into one that every student, every staff member and every parent can be proud of.
LEGO WALL - NEW ADDITION TO OUR LIBRARY!
Students are SOOO excited to use our new Lego Wall! We anticipate that it will be a main attraction for students! Students will be doing a variety of tasks with legos (challenges, free-builds) and have the opportunity to add their creations to the wall or work directly on the wall to build. Reminder - what goes on the wall is not permanent and therefore once you walk away from it others are able to use your blocks to construct something new. It will be an amazing, ever-evolving piece of art!
