    book cart       Mrs. Howe      virtual Spring Break

    I miss seeing your smiling faces in the library! Next week was our Spring Break and I know a lot of plans have been changed. So I made you a Virtual Spring Break activity for the week. Each day you will be able to visit new places with virtual field trips, read ebooks, listen to audiobooks, complete STEM activities, do crafts, and movement activities. I hope you have fun!

     Our school library may be closed, however, you can still read books from home or ebooks and audiobooks on Sora (K-12) or epic!  (K-6) and complete Mrs. Howe's K- 6 School Closure Reading Challenge.
