Good afternoon Everyone! It's brisk outside but the sun is shining and the sky is blue. It's vacation and I hope everyone is out enjoying themselves and spending quality time with their loved ones.
I thought I would share an important update made on our symbaloo this week. If you aren't sure what a symbaloo is, ask your youngster they'll tell you. Remind them it's on our Library Media Center page and that should jog their memory if they've forgotten.
I have now added a link for Kiddle. Kiddle is a Google site that allows your child to make safe searches without worrying about inappropriate content popping up.
In a review by Common Sense Media, Kiddle received 3 out of 5 stars for appropriate use by students 8 years of age and up. There are some things to be aware of with this website.
It may allow for some scary content as well as advertisments however, this is out-weighed by the educational value and positive messaging children have access to. A safer alternative to using Google as a search engine, this will become a staple at NDS in the future.
Below is a link for you to check out the review from Common Sense Media as well as a link to Kiddle itself.
