Evening Street's


Library Update (8/31/2020):

If you have library books to return to school, you will be able to do so when you come to school for assessments and supply pick up! Look for our related arts team in the front of the school! I am looking forward to seeing you all, whether it is in person or on Zoom! If there is a problem with this, please email me at: sstrock@wscloud.org

In the meantime, enjoy reading! I miss you all!!! And THANK YOU!!!

Welcome to Evening Street's Library! New things are added frequently!

Welcome to Remote Learning with Evening Street Library and Ms. Strock! I will post links and directions for how to access different library activities and books on my Seesaw page. My Seesaw page can be accessed from your child's homeroom teacher's page. All children can use our HelloID to access programs with which they are familiar. The link is here: HelloID

From the kiosk children can use Book Flix and ABCya without logging on. They can log onto Learning.com, Wixie, and the Worthington Public Library (they can use a library pass or a library card to access all programs available through the Worthington Public Library including Digital Downloads for Kids!). Library Passes have been introduced to grades 3-5 and will be introduced to 2nd grade this rotation (3/11/2020 to 3/16/2020). See video below for how to access Digital Downloads for Kids (part 2 will be posted asap).

Some questions to think about or talk with your family about: Why did the boys laugh at Asiya? How would you have felt? Think about the wise words from Asiya's Mama. What did Mama mean when she said: Don't carry around hurtful words that others say. Drop them. They are not yours to keep. They only belong to those who said them. What can you do to be accepting of those who are different than you? How are you like Asiya? How are you like Faizah?

Remember, we have more in common with others than we have differences! Learn from others! Spread your kindness!
