My Students

More than 100 students come to the Library Media Center every day to check out books and periodicals, conduct inquiry-based research projects, participate in Makerspace and green screen areas, and collaborate on project-based learning ideas that impact all of their other classes and subjects. My students love the diversity of the Media Center and it is the hub of our school.

Their experiences in the library spark an excitement and love of learning that impacts all of their other classes and subjects throughout their educational careers.

I teach 400 Pre-K through fifth grade students from a rural, farming community in the upstate of South Carolina. We are a Title I school and 100% of my students receive free lunch. My students enjoy coming to the library, crave learning new things, and love when they can participate in our STEAM Makerspace!

My Project

My students love being challenged with new resources in our library's Makerspace. The Root iRobot will allow elementary age students to learn programming and coding language - a skill that is essential to build 21st century learners! They can collaborate through art, music and code to learn to program this real-life robot. The board games are each STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering and math) and will build these important skills through play.

So much of our students' day is spent on a Chromebook in the classroom; having the ability to build essential STEAM skills through board games and a robot will provide unlimited opportunities to collaborate, create, build, and code.

It will give them the opportunity to experience coding language and hands-on STEAM skills to prepare them for high school and their future careers. Thank you so much for considering our library classroom!
