My Students

The MCR3 school district is located in a rural, central Missouri farming community. The district serves approximately 260 students K-12. I see elementary and middle school students each week on a fixed schedule; each class period is 50 minutes. Students may also visit the library during open library times. High school students visit the high school library on an open schedule. I also collaborate with high school teachers on a regular basis. When I am occupied with duties in either library, students are served by my certified paraprofessional.

As a school librarian in a small, rural school district, I'm constantly looking for ways to expand my students' world view.

Any additional resources help to achieve this goal. Resources may be used as activities in the library or shared with teachers through the classroom or collaboration with myself.

My Project

Students will be able to try their hand at construction and engineering through play in a safe environment. All of our students love to build with LEGO bricks, and having these tools in our library maker space will allow students to be creative and have fun while also working on engineering skills.

We will have LEGO challenges for students to construct various structures within a MakerSpace environment.

Hands-on activities like this not only build skills but also build patience. LEGO bricks with accessories will be a tool that will give students a break from paper and pencil tasks and give them practical manipulatives to handle.
