For GHES Teachers -- Jan 2017
World Read Aloud Day
During the week of Feb.13, I will be connecting your class with someone outside the walls of our school during your library time! This will be a great opportunity for our learners as we promote reading and its importance.
Our Makerspace is OPEN for business!
Over the past few months, you should have begun hearing the word Makerspace more and more. I have started implementing Makerspaces into library lessons to educate our students about the exciting new thing at Glenhope! Our Makerspace will encompass more than just something that happens during library time. It is important that you are in the know about what it means and how it can benefit your kiddos, as well as how you can incorporate the materials into your curriculum.
The two GTU classes this session will involve:
#wk1 Exploring new Makerspace products, brainstorming ideas about different ways we can get the most effective use out of our Makerspace
#wk2 Explore different sites and collaborate to find different ways to use Makerspace materials with your specific TEKS/curriculum
If you are unable to attend either of the GTU sessions, please click on the following link to add any ideas you may have about the Gator Makerspace! These could be things you have read about Makerspaces, ideas about scheduling, materials for Makerspaces......
- Persuade me through grade-level appropriate writing what they want and why
- Student has completed a specific goal they have been working on with their teacher (this could be anything from behavior, writing stages, reading level..)
- Follow step by step instructions to design an object
- Design their own object from scratch
PRIOR POST: Epic eBooks has an ENORMOUS number of popular books, non-fiction books and a lot more to offer your readers. Mackinvia has eBooks that I have shown your kiddos but I feel that Epic is much more USER FRIENDLY and has so many more CHOICES! The books on Epic are FREE!
The downfall is you have to set up your class and add your students. I am willing to do this for you! After I get you signed up, it is as easy as having your students log in! Just email me your class list or let me know you want me to do this for you and I will let you know when you can access it! YOUR STUDENTS WILL LOVE IT!!!
