Media Center News w/ Mrs. Wolf

Havel’s Media Center has been buzzing with activities this fall. We just wrapped up a month long celebration of “Thinksgiving”. Students worked hard to solve puzzles and create strategies to problem solve, design & build items in our Maker’s Space area as well as focused on literature of the season. As December begins, our shift focuses to coding. Students will participate in a Festival of Coding celebration all month long. We kick off this celebration by participating in the world-wide Hour of Code week December 9-13. Millions of students in over 180 countries will participate in this amazing event. Visit the website https://code.org/learn to sample some of the coding activities students will use to explore the world of coding. In addition to coding on the computers, students will learn to program Ozobot robots in our Maker’s Space area. Seasonal literature will be shared and book check out will continue as we enter the time of year where curling up with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate makes for a perfect weekend afternoon or weekday evening. Make time to share your love of literature with your children this season and together set a goal for the new year to read 20 minutes a day!
