Common Sense Media Digital Citizenship Lessons for Kindergarten-2nd Grades
To date, the librarian has given the first two lessons on digital citizenship to kindergarten, first, and second grades. Third, fourth, and fifth grades will be phased in by next school year. Our first lesson was on Going Places Safely and was given to students back in November. In January, students will have a lesson on Smart Searching. Each lesson has a parent component, which includes informational flyers with information for you about helping your child at home.
Links to the parent flyers have been posted on our website at http://www.dentonisd.org/Page/81195. You can find more information about Common Sense Media at https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/parents.

Donations Needed for Library Makerspace!
The spaces we currently have in our Makerspace include: a sewing, knitting, and crocheting space, a take apart station for electronics, etc., a LEGO station, paper crafts like oragami , 3D puzzles and games space, and building and inventing space. In the future, we hope to add robotics and coding spaces.
We will accept anything for our Makerspace, since this is a creative space that will reuse and recycle most things for our projects, Our biggest needs now are LEGOs, sturdy work gloves, small tools, thread, fabrics, and electronics for our Take Apart Station.
Thank you for whatever support you can provide!
