Learning Commons

What is a Learning Commons?

learning commons, formerly known as the school library, is a shared learning space that is both physical and virtual. Like libraries, the learning commons supports a student-centered approach by providing quality resources and flexible space for instruction, social and collaborative learning, production and presentation.

Research shows that students who have access to quality school library services, whatever name it goes by, are more likely to exhibit advanced student achievement and literacy development. Immanuel Christian Elementary School is committed to providing this for our students.

Welcome to another exciting year in the Learning Commons!   

ICES students will be visiting the Learning Commons on a weekly basis with the class. During these times, they will have opportunity to sign out books, take them home, and enjoy them. It is important for the books to be transported to and from school in their individual labeled red bags which are provided. This helps eliminate unnecessary damage to our resources!
