Quote of the Week
What is a Makerspace???
Students could build a family of robots out of legos or fold up zoo animals out of origami paper. Makerspace materials can be anything from paper and crayons to computers.... and anything in between.
I am in search for donations such as craft materials, paper rolls, duct tape, etc in support of the Makerspace Movement. If you have any materials just lying around, I would love to take it off your hands! Many thanks!
Makerspace Mondays in the Library
Tool(s) of the Week - Classroom Website
Create your helicopter parents an off-site landing pad! ;-)
With a classroom website you can communicate clearly with your parents about what goes on in your classroom. This often gives them a chance to be more constructive with their feedback to you about their students' successes and struggles.
A classroom website can also educate the parents about your policies, goals, subject matter, and style - which allows them to help their students do better in your class.
Create a FREE, user-friendly website with any of the building platforms listed below.
Tip of the Week
Do your students like the Captain Underpants series of books by Dav Pilkey? If so, they can visit his Website for a fun, interactive experience!
