Our Library Learning Commons is hopping busy.
At École Tuxedo Park, our Learning Commons (centre d'innovation), is buzzing with activities. Libraries were traditionally quiet spaces. This is not often the case here. We have started a Maker Space which includes: Lego, a magnetic construction site, finger puppets, arts, letter and card making, as well as coding. We have a large selection of new French and English books. Our staff and teacher librarian, promote a love of reading throughout the year. We participate in I Love to Read, Forest of Reading, collaborative story-telling, research, predictions and introducing young children to a variety of genres. If you were to wander into our Creative Commons, you could see students researching a topic of their choice, students helping each other with mini-construction projects, using educational apps or programming and coding on our iPads. We have a .33 teacher librarian and a half-time technician to support our school learners and teaching staff. Our library commons is equipped with iPads for research, to use educational links and to extend our learning with technology.
