  • A Very Special Place....

    A Very Special Place....

    We think the Fleming Learning Center is a special place. From the cozy chairs and couches to the two fireplaces scattered about the room, the ambiance is welcoming.

  • Welcome to the Fleming Learning Center which is, of course, our library-media center. 

    Destiny is our card catalog system for finding resources by title, author, subject, key word, or series.  You can check on not only what Fleming School might have but also all the school libraries within the EWSD. This can be accessed from both school and home. 

    We are very proud of our collection which is constantly being added to and updated. We welcome your suggestions!

  • Puppets and more.......

    Posted by Sally Madeira on 4/19/2018

    Students have been busy in the Learning Center since January.  We did a winter outdoor adventure unit, integrating fiction and non-fiction books as well as videos and author studies.  Did you know that Gary Paulsen, author of Hatchet and many other books, credits a librarian for helping him to be the person he is today? 

    Then we moved onto the inspiring power of Biographies during Black History Month and Women's History Month.  Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Helen Keller, Annie Sullivan, and Amelia Earhart and so many more amazing people!  

    Most recently we are becoming Graphic Novel experts.  Graphic novels are like novels, picture books, movies and poetry, rolled into one.  We are studying the many components of graphic books and are about to try our hand at creating our own amazing stories.  

    Then there are the Puppet shows!  Script writing, acting, puppeteering skills, filming, editing, recording sound....the muppets really do know what they're doing.  Check out the puppet shows on this page. The Bully is about learning to be kind and make friends. Once Upon a Time there was a very special Learning Center...........well, that's about our very special place.  There are more shows to come.

    We're also honing our skills as building engineers, board game experts, weavers, and book makers.  Of course, there are so many books to listen to on playaway and DVDs to watch on our personal DVD players, coding games on iPads, and the Talking Globe for world travelers.  

    Oh, and our reading groups.  Some of us are reading Over Sea, Under Stone by Susan Cooper.  Do you know the legend of King Arthur?  It's woven into this mystery set in Cornwall, England. Another group is reading The Boggart by the same author.  Boggarts are hundreds of years old, can be invisible at times, shift their shape, and love to be mischievous.  Can you imagine what happens when the boggart mistakenly leaves its Scottish castle home and ends up in a big city in Canada? 

    School is not over yet!  There's still so much to do!
