@ your Gator Learning Commons

August 2016 Newsletter

Welcome Back!


Hope your first week was great and you are getting settled in. I am so happy to be here at Glenhope Elementary. I look forward to getting to know each of you and working with you. I would love to have some feedback about what your needs are from the library this year. Please fill out any ideas you have for our Learning Commons on the Padlet I've created! You can add as many things as you would like! This will help me get a pulse of Glenhope and what your needs are!


I will send out a monthly Smore update to keep you informed about all that is going on here in the Learning Commons. You can also always find previous newsletters at www.gatorzread.weekly.com under the Teacher tab.

Just a few things......

Global Read Aloud

GRA is a wonderful way to connect to others outside our classroom while sharing wonderful literature. If you would like to participate, I will purchase the book for your class. Let me know if you are interested in participating so I can order you a book. I will have a GTU session to help you get signed up in a few weeks.
