Jacinto City Branch Library explains S.T.E.M.

Scientific elementsS.T.E.M. is a way of promoting the teaching and learning of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics concepts to children.

Jacinto City Branch Library wants to know if you're interested in promoting these ideas to the children in your life!  Not sure what we mean?  Let's take science for instance.  Here are some videos that can help you explain science to elementary age children using books from our existing catalog.

If you were a turkey, what disguise would you try to save yourself?

Turkey Trouble CoverI think I would disguise myself as a turtle. I love turtles; and well, I have never looked at a turtle and thought it would make a great Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving is not for the faint-hearted. I am dead serious: the cooking, the cleaning, all of that prep work that goes into preparing for family visits, it’s beyond measure! Thanksgiving, in my opinion, is the kickoff to the busiest time of the year. Survival mode is kicked into high gear and by the time I get home, I am not only exhausted, but usually a little brain-dead. The last thing I want to do is read a bedtime story to my kids and I am the Children’s Specialist! I can already picture you nodding your head in agreement. Well, I have the solution for you!

Halloween Fun for Little Kids at Galena Park Branch Library

BooApaloozaDo you trick-or-treat when the sun is still out? My kids are daytime trick-or-treaters and I am not ashamed to admit it. Yes, my neighbors look at me funny when I knock on their door at five in the afternoon, but what else am I supposed to do? I have tried to trick-or-treat at night and it has always led to children crying. Dragging three kids from house to house for a piece of candy is not worth it, at least not for me. We have also tried to sell the, “Let’s just pass out candy this year” concept, just to end up being the ‘bad’ parents that would not let their kids trick or treat.
