Bluebonnet Books

Bluebonnet book season will be over before you know it! Voting will take place for 4th-6th grade on Friday, January 27th. Therefore, all books must be logged in and recorded on their tracking sheet by Wednesday, January 25th. Remember- students only have to read 5 books in order to be eligible to vote!

Schlitterbahn's Waves of Pages (K-5th)

Teachers- the last day students can submit their Schlitterbahn reading log to you is December 16th. If they submit them before the due date, please keep them. After December 16th, please compile your information and record it on your Classroom Summary Form. The class summary forms are due to me no later than January 9th.

Electronic Resources

Are you planning for your research unit? LGISD has many wonderful online databases to help your students research. We have everything you could need for Kinder through 6th grade. I have linked the Google Doc with database information so you can bookmark it and access it all year long. Please see me if you need help or need some guidance as to which resource you should use!
