New educational databases

The Plum Creek Library System has added three educational databases from Scholastic to our services.

Each of these sites is available for unlimited access with an active Plum Creek Library System library card.

Bookflix

Bookflix is a literacy resource for grades pre-K through 3 that pairs video storybooks with related non-fiction titles. There are currently more than 140 book pairings on the site.

All titles can be read with or without audio, and key vocabulary words are highlighted. In addition, the pairings all have related interactive educational games. Bookflix also offers the opportunity to dig deeper into each subject, with age-appropriate web links for each book pairing.

ScienceFlix

ScienceFlix offers science videos and articles for grades 4-9. Each article is available in three different reading levels to ensure comprehension. Additional resources from safe, vetted sources are included for each topic. Resources and tools including lesson plans, quizzes, videos, and science labs are also available.

Watch & Learn Library

Watch & Learn Library is a database of educational videos on a variety of subjects, designed for students in pre-K through grade 3. All videos are available in both English and Spanish, and offer closed captioning. Each video has correlating materials available, including quizzes and “think sheets” for students to record their thoughts, give reviews, and more.

Whether your students are learning in-person, at home, or in a hybrid model this fall, be sure to check out these new online educational opportunities available through the library!

Links to all three databases are accessible on the home page of our website.
