Welcome to Millbrooke Elementary's Library Media Center Homepage!

Please visit the links on this library page.  I will be updating it daily with resources, including e-books that you can read from home.

 

Library NTI Assignments

 

NTI learning is an instruction program allowing students to continue learning from home via technology on days when students are out of school.  The Superintendent will decide when days are designated as NTI days.  On these days, assignments for students can be accessed by visiting a teacher's classroom website.  Please read the directions below for your grade level to view your assignment.  If you have no way of printing the templates, use your own sheet of notebook paper to complete the assignment.

 

K-1 grades 

 

Complete the story map on any book of your choice that is on/around your reading level.  Use the link on my links page under "File Manager" on this webpage for the primary grade story map.  Pick a book of your choice and describe what happen in the beginning, middle, and end of the story. If you do not have a means to print out the template, you can use a sheet of notebook paper and describe what happened in the beginning, middle, and end of the story.  If you prefer one of the choices for the 2-3 and 4-6 grade assignments, you are more than welcome to complete one of them instead.  Only one per week is required.

 

2-3 grades

 

Complete the story map on a book of your choice that is on/around your reading level.  Use the link under "File Manager" on this webpage for the story map for 2nd/3rd grades to describe the characters, setting, problem and solution of the story.  If you do not have a means to print out the template, you can use a sheet of notebook paper and describe the characters, setting, problem and solution of the story.  If you prefer one of the choices for the 4-6 grade assignments, you are more than welcome to complete one of them instead.  Only one per week is required.

     The school library program serves to instill a love of reading, inspire life-long learning, and foster independent library use. Students visit once a week for drama/library media class and to check out books.  Also, students will be practicing information literacy skills.

 

       I look forward to working with Millbrooke students this year!  If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me (robin.crosby@christian.kyschools.us).
