Wallace Gregg is a school that consists of grades K-6. Each class in grades K-2 visits the library at a set time once a week as a special. During these weekly visits, our students discover and learn about the library, amazing books that they could read, websites, digital citizenship, the research process, researching tools, and many more. Each class in grades 3-6 visits our library as a special for one nine weeks for research. During this time, students have a research topic that their teacher gives, and we use this topic to create a final project. During this process, students will be utilizing online digital resources and printed resources located in the library. Students are able to check out books anytime that the library is open without classes. Even though classes come to the Media Center, other classes or individual students may also stop by as needed.
Our school's Research Lab is also located within the library. It is equipped with 24 computers. Teachers may schedule a time to utilize the research lab with a class or small groups. The Research Lab is also utilized for AR testing, STAR testing, Classworks, and Lexia. For our upper classes (3-6), most of their digital literacy and enrichment class time is spent here. This is where these students will grow their knowledge of researching and finding reliable resources.
