Welcome to the Lewisburg Primary School Library

The goal of the LPS library is for all students to develop a love of literature.  Through the author studies, stations, and thematic studies, the Lewisburg Primary library will strive to reach students' goals in improving reading skills. 

If I can ever be of assistance, please feel free to contact me.

About Ms. Judi

My name is Judi Stewart.  I graduated in 1994 from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education.  I received my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Language Arts in 1996 from the University of Mississippi.  I received my Library Media National Board Certification in 2018. 

    I taught second grade for sixteen years before making the move to the library.  This is my 25th year of teaching.   I am blessed to be a part of the LPS family. 

    My daughter, Merrill, is a sophomore at Mississippi State University.  She is majoring in Geographical Informational Systems (fancy way of saying mapping).   She enjoys taking care of the animals on my parent's farm, The Office, and hanging out with her friends.  My son, William, is a senior at Lewisburg High School.  He is a sports kid!  He plays football, powerlifts, and throws shot put for the track team.  He is a starting tackle and long snapper.  He has signed to play football for Northwest Community College in the fall.  Go Rangers! 

     I am a huge Mississippi State Bulldog fan!  Nothing makes me happier than watching my Dawgs play.  You will find me in the stands for each and every game cheering my team to victory.  I also am a avid reader!  I love to discover new authors to enjoy.  Not only do I read books written for someone as old as I am, I love to discover new books for my LPS kiddos!  My prayer is that they will develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime!

I am missing each and every LPS friend during these difficult times.  In order to stay connected with your child, I will be posting library lessons online for you to utilize.  It is my hope that during this difficult time, your child escapes in a good book.  Reading can help student cope with the uncertainies they may be feeling.  Be sure to follow my Twitter feed @LPS_Library for daily links to fun stories and activities.  I can't wait to hug my friends!  I love you all and can't wait for our story time again!

May Author of the Month: Mo Willems
Mo

Mo Willems has a knack for both writing and drawing images.  He started drawing cartoons when he was a child and never quit.  He took a job out of college working for the Children's Television Workshop.  This lead to a job on Sesame Street, where he won 6 Emmy awards.  He also worked for many years as a stand up comedian and for Nickelodeon.  He is best known for his children's books.  In 2003, he released his first picture book, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus.  This book won him a Caldecott Honor.  His Elephant and Piggie books are a huge hit with kids of all ages.  The Easy Readers books won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Medals in 2008 and 2009.  Two of his Knuffle Bunny books won Caldecott Honor books as well.  Mo Willems is helping children cope with the uncertainty of the pandemic by creating a daily web show of Lunch Doodles with Mo.  Click on the Lunch Doodle icon to view his first episode.

Kindergarten-Second Grade Lesson for the week of May 18-21
Gilbert
It is hard to believe that this is the final week of school!  This week we are reading the book, "No More Pencils, No More Books, No More Teacher's Dirty Looks!" by Diane deGroat.   It is the last day of school!  Gilbert is excited about summer vacation.  After his class party, his teacher, Mrs. Byrd, will give out the end-of-the-year awards.  Will Gilbert receive one?  If you received an end-of-the-year award, what would it be?  Are you the best speller or mathematician? Maybe you are the kindest friend?  Draw a picture and write about the type of award you would receive! Be sure to share it on twitter and tag the LPS Library!  I hope that you each have a fun, restful, and safe summer.  I will miss you all!
