Spring Cleaning

 

 

 

 

Time to make some blog changes and clean up the Commons!  Please pardon the switch while we spring clean digitally and IRL.  Look for book give aways in the Commons.

Books and Break

Students may keep their library books over the winter break, but all books will be overdue the minute we return to school.  Students will have to return books before they can check out more.

We Need Volunteers!

The Kincaid Lindsey Learning Commons is in need of volunteers! Our shifts are 8:30-11:30 or 11:30-2:00 every week.  Your duties would include checking in and out children’s books, shelving books, and maintaining shelf order and other basic library tasks. If you LOVE to organize, have a strong knowledge of alphabetical order and how decimals work, we have a dream job (without pay) for you!  We have lots of opening so please email [email protected] for more information!

Winter Break And Books

Students may keep their library books over the winter break, but all books will be overdue the minute we return to school.  Students will have to return books before they can check out more.  We hope everyone has a warm and safe winter break!  See you back in January!

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Kincaid Elementary Lindsey Commons is closed the week of November 20-24.  We hope you have a fun and cozy vacation break with your family!  All books are due Monday, November 27!

QR’s are Cool!

What are QR Codes?  You are seeing them everywhere! QR Codes are machine-readable arrays of black and white squares which store URLs or other information for eading by the camera on a smartphone or tablet.  QR Codes can be displayed and accessed anywhere.  Anyone can generate their own QR Code. We like to use QRStuff.com because it is super easy and free. You can keep up with this blog by scanning the QR code on the Lindsey Commons News Board.  If you would like to download a QR Code reader app for Apple or Android, check out the list here.  We recommend I-Nigma because it is fast and simple.  Practice with them.  They are great tools for advertising and marketing, flipped learning, tours, videos and other interactive activities.
