Did you know you can access online books, World Book Encyclopedia and other web-based resources from our School website at home?
The last 2 weeks most of the primary classes have seen a story or two presented using Tumblebooks.
If you have found the library blog, you are very close to accessing the Web Resources too. Here are the instructions for accessing our Web Resources from the school website, on a computer. Tumblebooks and most of the other resources should work from a tablet as well, though may look just a wee bit different.
Tumblebooks provided mostly online storybooks of interest to K-3 but there are some chapter books and graphic novels some grade 4-7 students may find interesting. Storybooks are read to the students and partially animated. Some of the chapter books can be read aloud and the student can follow along. Some chapter books and the graphic novels are simply for reading online.
Tumblebooks seems to work best with Chrome on a computer but may work well enough on other devices, give it a try. Mobile devices will look and function differently than computers.
If you are prompted for login information try, sd41 for the username and login for the password.
