I teach in a Title One elementary school on the south side of Wichita, KS. It is a pre-k through fifth grade building that serves around five hundred and sixty students. I'm located in the heart of the school, the library.
Many of the students at my school don't have access to books or an inviting reading environment at home.
I love curling up at home on a comfy chair in a quiet room to read a good book. I want my students to experience that same feeling when they come to my library.
On Wednesdays, my students get to have an extra day in the library. On this day, we use our makerspace. This is their day to be creative and make whatever they want.
Makerspace can get really messy, so we need some organization.
The tubs in this project will help to organize all the materials that have been donated so kids can find what they need quickly. They only have about forty minutes of creation time, so I want them to use it to their fullest.
We are also asking for Play-Doh for our makerspace so that even our youngest students can have some simple, hands-on activities.
