Math Makerspace in the Library?!
Help me give my students hands-on manipulatives such as Geoboards, Tangrams, and Dominoes for independent learning in our Makerspace.
Our school library media center is n the process of creating a STEM-based Makerspace open to all students. In this Makerspace area, I envision hands-on materials available for independent hands-on learning stations.
Creating this Makerspace will engage our students in science, technology, engineering, and math in kinesthetic activities.
Our goal is to create a Makerspace open to all students in our media center. Our school consists of mostly minority students who qualify for the free or reduced lunch federal program.
Our library media center is in the process of creating a STEM-based Makerspace featuring hands-on activities. These materials will assist in adding the M for Math to our students' learning.
Math in the library may seem strange to some, but math correlations are often featured in many children's books.
For example, geoboards could be paired with Michael Hall's The Perfect Square; Loreen Leedy's Seeing Symmetry could be paired with tangrams. Additionally these materials may be used during our STEM independent learning stations held every Friday for grades 1-5.
Extending math concepts out of the classroom and into the library - wonderful!
