Lectura de Verano - Summer Reading

Los expertos dicen que los niños que leen durante el verano conservan su nivel de lectura; mientras los que no lo hacen retroceden en un 22% su nivel que equivale a dos meses del año escolar.

El verano es un excelente momento para que los niños lean lo que más les gusta, para aprender cosas nuevas y divertirse.

La lectura de verano es una buena forma de evitar que los niños pierdan terreno sobre lo aprendido durante el año. Según estudios, la lectura de verano puede mejorar los logros académicos generales del alumno, especialmente cuando empieza la escuela en otoño.

Maker Monday's at GP Library

I am really excited to announce our new Maker Monday program. Each Monday from 4-5 pm, we will explore a variety of S.T.E.M. projects that have been generously purchased by Port Houston. Thanks to community partners like Port Houston we are able to provide our customers with 21st century life skills like this. We will design with K’Nex build sets, complete basic circuits, and program robots. These are just a few of the things we are going to be doing, we hope to keep our makerspace growing!
