Elementary Media Center Activities

Students in Grades 1-2 have had a chance to experience Makerspaces during their Library/Media classes.  A makerspace is a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials.

The most important quality of a makerspace is that it encourages creativity. Students have been using Legos, Kenectics, paper and other items to create projects. Some projects are related to stories that they listen to or read during their Media Classes.

Students in Grades 3-4 have been using the program Type to Learn to develop keyboarding skills. Early introduction to keyboarding reduces bad habit development and provides additional benefits that include improvement in spelling, writing and rading comprehension. The Type to Learn program provides a research-based interactive learning environment designed to guide students through the keyboarding skill development process
