Learners are innovative thinkers who are successful, confident, respectful and caring

Learning Commons

Welcome to the Lakeview Learning Commons page

The Learning Commons is an inclusive, flexible, learner-centered space for collaboration, inquiry, imagination, and play. We are excited to continue to see our Makerspace grow and for students to develop their skills as "makers" both in the Learning Commons and in the classroom. Makerspaces utilize creativity and collaboration for making, learning, exploring, and sharing.   In the Learning Commons, students are also supported to develop competencies or the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for successful learning, living, and working.  

Our school also has a great selection of books for you to read and enjoy.  To see what books are available in our school library click HERE to access Destiny and choose 'Lakeview Elementary School'.  To see what books you have checked-out or to place a hold on a book, sign in with your school email address and password.

You can also check out great e-books and audio books using SORA.

Use “explore” to find books

Use “shelf” to manage your books

SORA is great for many reasons!  You never have to worry about overdue or fines.  The e-books are returned automatically.  You can still renew if needed and you can take out 10 out at a time! You can also access any public library you are a member of.  Just go to "Add Library" on the right side of the screen.

You can get a Public Library card on-line and for FREE this year!  You can also link it with SORA so when you search SORA for a book, it will search the public library as well.  Plus the Lethbridge Public Library has a TON of things to do on-line!  Check it out!


Loose parts stories!

After reading some of the wordless book, “Junk DNA”, students wrote their own story
with loose parts.
