My Students

The students I serve in the library media center are Kindergarten through fifth graders who have very different backgrounds, interests, hobbies, learning styles, and abilities. Being in a culturally diverse, high poverty/low income school, my students are faced with many challenges. My students are curious, active, love to read, and enjoy inventing and exploring new technology, but have little home access. I want to give all my students opportunities to problem solve, think critically, and explore with hands-on learning materials.

My Project

These materials will allow me to start a Makers Space in the Library Media Center at my school. My students will have the opportunity to explore and create as they build structures using the Brain Flakes, EMIDO Building Blocks, and the Magnetic Tile Building Blocks. My students love learning using hands-on materials. My classes K-5 will benefit from all these STEM materials. I will use library books to connect economics and the different jobs of engineers. A Makers Space will give my students opportunities to think creatively and to explore. My students will use decision making skills as they collaborate with their classmates. These are all important skills for all my students.
