We have been doing a lot of things in the library this week! The kids are enjoying the new stations in makerspace this week. We are starting to use Blueprints and Blocks which is a building station that I wrote a grant for and received last week! The kids have different levels of "blueprints" that they can build from. We've also added more things to do with the Ozobots and of course our magnaformers and B-bots remain super popular!
One thing I learned about at the TCEA conference I attended was ideas for our awesome 3D printer. Here are some things the kids and I tried this week. Check back for more!
We also used Skype in my second grade classes this week to celebrate World Read Aloud Day. We skyped with author Sean Fay Wolfe and the students loved it. They learned what it takes to become a writer and that they ALL could do it! What a great week!
