PSJA Thomas Jefferson T-STEM ECHS
5th Six Weeks
Library Media Awards
Ms. Diana Ybanez and her students have placed at the Texas Media Awards for the past five years. The Texas Media Awards Ceremony were held at 6pm on Thursday, April 21, 2016 at the Hilton- Americas Downtown. A reception will be held at a later date for the participants and their families in the Titan's library.
During National Library week, I Pads were available for students to use to create a poem. Instant Poetry is a free app, It is fun and easy. You can use your own pictures or choose a background, tap a button to pop up some words, and then drag them around the screen to create your poem. The poems can be shared with friends through social media.
National Library Week
A different event was held in the library every day during National Library week. They were all successful, but the one that students seem to enjoy more than the others was the coloring activity. Students came into the library during their lunch period to color.
For many people coloring is therapeutic. Institutions across the globe use coloring to help people "vent" their feelings and frustrations, as well as other emotions through coloring. This event was a success, I left out the coloring pages, bookmarkers along with the crayons and coloring pencils the rest of the week.
