My Students

It’s so wonderful when I hear, “We love the library!” from our young readers. They have a passion for reading and a desire for learning. They especially love engaging in special projects during our makerspace time. During makerspace, students develop STEM skills to make them future ready.

Part of our library was affected by Harvey, but that did not hold my students back.

I often have groups of students waiting by the library to greet me every morning! What a way to start your day! They are inspiring!

My Project

The students will create their very own school-wide morning video news announcements. Every week, students will have a different role. The roles will include camera operators, interviewers, script editors, and video editors to name a few. Just when students have mastered their roles, they will then train their peers to be the next production group. They will learn firsthand what it takes to produce and run a newscast for their fellow students, teachers and parents to enjoy.

Our school is a bit older, so this equipment would be an awesome addition so everyone could have an opportunity to participate in such a unique learning experience.

We need a green screen, a microphone, and a photo light. Students will develop skills that will help to make them future leaders, and they will have fun doing it!
