October Newsletter

A note from my laptop to yours

Dear Parents,

October is a month with lots of fun activities and learning.


With the First Graders, the students will be learning about "good fit" books and how they can find them for themselves. We will be learning how our addresses at our houses and the addresses on books have a similar purpose.


Second Graders explored Encyclopedias and will be learning more about how to be independent book finders. We will continue to discuss the importance of finding "good fit" books.


Third, Fourth and Fifth Graders are moving toward independence in finding their own books by using a variety of tools such as Destiny, Call Numbers and Signs throughout the LMC.


The book fair will be here from November 9th till 13th with a wide variety of English books and Libreria Studium providing quality Spanish books. There will be more specific information coming home and in this newsletter at the beginning of next month.


In this month's LMC News, I have started a new section titled "Family Reading Time." Every month, you can find one of my blog, "Tales of a Displaced Librarian" posts that relates to one of my passions of families reading together. I would love any feedback that you might have.


And, as always, there are a number of book recommendations from me to you and your family.


Thank you for taking the time to read the LMC Newsletter. May you and your family have some quality reading time every day this month.



Best regards,


Jennifer Gibson-Millis a.k.a. Mrs. G-M
