Elementary Library STEAM Resources

Keep reading, wondering and exploring!

We are here because of YOU and we are here FOR you!

To our Students:

We love our jobs because of you, and we miss seeing you everyday! We care about you and your learning, and we want to help. There are so many free resources available to you, so we have compiled them into this newsletter. We will continue to update this as new resources emerge that we feel will be helpful to your learning. If you have any questions, feel free to email your Teacher Librarian & Media Specialist!
