Welcome to May and all of the exciting outdoor and indoor activities associated with spring!  God has blessed us with mothers who stretch themselves to home school their students, tidy, feed and nurture their families!  So this Mother's Day let's thank,  honour, love and pamper our mums!

Proverbs 14:1 Homes are made by the wisdom of women.

Other themes this month include historical fiction,  Ebook reading and current awareness for April/May in our newsletter via Scoopit with lots of new and exciting web links, techie tools and educational resources!

E Books in your learning commons!
 E books are an amazing way to get your students excited about literacy from their mobile device. Our learning commons now has Kobo and Sony eReaders to take your students on that adventure, as well as a growing E book  library!  Kobo will only read e Books, but the Sony will allow your student to read or listen to audiobooks.  This review by Read, Write Web will influence your thinking if you have not already purchased or borrowed an eBook reader!  Students can access the E Library with their Encom name as their username and their PO number as the pin number.  Parents will have had their username and passwords for their own accounts sent to them via email a while ago.  Please let me know if you do not know your student or parent information and I will be happy to help?  For more information on how to download the apps please refer to the help page on our website. 

Blessings to you for a beautiful sunshiney weekend!
Pippa, Natalie, Shandra and Eirena.
