Welcome to the Albertville Primary Library and Computer Lab!
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader! ~ Margaret Fuller
Students come to the library once each six-day cycle for 30 minutes. During that time students will learn a quick lesson on how to use a public library. Afterwards, they will go to the reading corner and share a good read. The students may then check out one book.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. ~ Dr. Seuss
Our school library also houses our computer lab. Students visit the lab once or twice each six-day cycle for 30 minutes each time. During this time, your child will use a reading program called Lexia Core5®.
Lexia Core5® is a program that helps students at all reading levels, This program supports independent student-driven learning.
Over the course of the school year, your child will learn to use a mouse. This can be a challenge for students who've never used a digital device before and for those who've only encountered touch screens.
Your child will also learn:
- The names for the parts of a computer
- How to exit from a window
- How to move a mouse accurately
- How to hold the mouse still when clicking
- How to click and how to click and drag
- How to press a key lightly so only one letter is entered
- How to log in/log off
Yes, kids love technology, but they also love Legos, scented markers, handstands, books, and mud puddles. It's all about balance. ~ Unknown
