Rocky Mount Media Center
ABOUT THE MEDIA CENTER
The Media Center is an integral part of learning at Rocky Mount. Here children are welcome to check out books, read, do research and access the Internet. Over 11,000 items are available for student and teacher use including books, magazine, software and videos. We are open from 8:00am - 2:10pm every school day and encourage you to stop by.
Rocky Mount is fortunate to have access to numerous off-site databases. These resources are available both at school and to our students at home.
Media Center Curriculum.
The Media Center sees every class once every two weeks. The lessons we have completed so far this year include:
Media Center rules and expectations, logging on as student at school and writing/illustrating a letter about summer vacation.
Finding books using Destiny and a book hunt locating books online and in the Media Center by category and Lexile level.
Literary genres. Students write a summary about their favorite book and take a picture to create a reading database.
Research with non-fiction books. Classes created a "Weird but True" book.
Thank you for a great Fall Book Fair.
Our Summer Reading Book Swap was a huge success. Students traded 1,057 books!
A reminder that students are encouraged to bring their own electronic device to school. More information is available by clicking here.
The Cobb County Public Library has teamed up with Cobb County Schools to offer extended access to print and online resources. Students now have access to public library databases using their Cobb students ID's.
