A Puzzling Way to Learn

My students need activities to reinforce their classroom learning in a fun setting. Students often use the library as a place to study, socialize and grow as learners. I try to provide unique, meaningful learning opportunities.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students are creative and energetic learners who live in a small community with limited funding. They are highly motivated and enjoy opportunities to think outside the box. The community works hard to provide necessary resources for our students, but it is sometimes necessary to seek outside assistance to acquire materials that supplement our curriculum. We are always looking for ways to support our students' varied learning styles and needs. Community support in a small town is instrumental in helping to create a learning environment that fosters creativity and exploration!

My Project

I have chosen puzzles and activities that are directly connected to a variety of classroom topics and themes. My hope is that students will use the library and our resources to support their classroom experiences and to help them reinforce what their teachers are providing for them.

The puzzles and activities I have chosen, such as human anatomy and great inventions, will be a fun way to continue to grow and learn!

The library is designed as a space for creativity, community-building and engagement, as well as exploratory learning. Students in our school seem to enjoy working in groups to complete challenges or to think strategically through game play. I hope the puzzles and activities I have chosen will continue to feed their eager energy!
