Library Newsletter

Welcome back!


First off, if you know a better "B" word than "babbles", I'm up for suggestions- it's all I could think of!


This is a monthly newsletter I started last year. Typically, I send this out in the beginning of the month, but the library has been so busy I've just now gotten to it! This short newsletter will have updates about the library and some fun other things. If you have any suggestions please send them to me at jennifer.pope@lgisd.net

Makerspace

We started a mini-Makerspace last year that was open to our 4th-6th grades. This year, it is open to the entire campus!


Teachers: If you want a fun STEM lesson as an extension to go with your unit, come see me. I have resources for science, math, reading, etc... I'm working with 2nd grade in 2 weeks- we're doing a STEM activity to go with their folktale unit!


4th-6th grade teachers: The Makerspace will still be open for those kiddos you'd like to reward.
