My Students

My library students are enthusiastic learners who are excited to meet new challenges and enjoy a variety of learning opportunities. Walking through our library, you will hear excited conversations about the books they are reading, discussions about interesting discoveries in their online research, or exclamations of delight as they share about a reading level they have graduated.

My students have diverse backgrounds and a variety of needs.

We are a Title I school with a high ELL population and free breakfast and lunch for all. For most of our students, the library is their only access to quality reading material, technology, and a place to create.

My Project

A makerspace is a place where students can gather to work on technological projects while sharing ideas, materials, and knowledge. When they are creating, they are using valuable critical thinking skills to solve problems. Makerspace activities are a way for students of different abilities and learning styles to experiment, try, learn and create at their own pace and to problem-solve as they go along.

The fairy tale kits will provoke inquiry and critical thinking as students build bridges strong enough for multiple goats to cross, engineer and construct houses durable enough to not be blown down by the big bad wolf, and design a chair that can hold anyone in the bear family without wobbling or falling over.

The K'NEX kit has a lot of building and creating possibilities. Students will be able to create from their own imaginations or build replicas of real-world machines to gain an understanding of the principles that make them work.
