Welcome to our New Media Center

Hometown's New Media Center

The new space includes presentation screens, a STEM area and flexible seating.

This year, Hometown School was one of the first schools in District 123 to receive fully remodeled media center. Our library classes are taught by Mrs. Lazinek and we are so excited for all the new changes in there!! The library classes in January will include a combo of the following skills:

Grades K- 1: Digital Citizenship (Internet Safety)

Fiction Winter stories will be read aloud and they will be focusing on story elements and difference between fiction and nonfiction.

Grades 2-3: Digital Citizenship (Responsibility online)

STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) activities. For example, students will be building winter structures. Students will also be doing research on snow formation/ snowflakes.

4-5: Digital Citizenship (Being Respectful online). STEM activities such as building winter structures

Research: the science behind snowflakes (4th)

Research: Snowflake Bentley (5th)

Mrs. Lazinek is so excited about all the new updates. She said, "I would have to say some of the perks of the library remodel are the presentation screens that have been installed (they allow for the students to view what I present from anywhere in the room), the STEM area that allows for more student seating and many activities to take place concurrently, and the flexible seating read aloud area that the primary students love to sit in to hear stories read aloud to them, while the older students love to sit there and read their newly selected books independently when a book exchange day occurs."

Thank you D123 for providing our students with the most amazing new space to learn and grow.
