GENIUS HOUR Fourth and fifth grade students started a rotation of Genius Hour learning when we came back to school in January.  We started by focusing on our passions and new learning we wanted to accomplish.  We have researched our topic, created a list of steps to get to our end result, and were sure to cite our sources along the way.  We are busy now working on our projects that we will share with others sometime in March or April.

Our third graders researched inventors and are now building games they invented.  We have worked through the design process and are now in the building and testing phase.  We will be getting feedback from our classmates next week in order to improve our games.  We are working so hard. The entire school, all 610 students will play our games!  

READ Yep, in a library with a MakerSpace, we read...a lot.  We read Missouri award books (a ton of award books), take part in Caldecott and A to Z mystery reading challenges, we create book trailer…

Over 25,000 Views

Several years ago I created a smore graphic to answer the questions of those wanting to bring a MakerSpace to their school.  This month, that smore has been viewed over 25,000 times.  WOW!  The maker movement is here and is not going away.  What a great way for kids to learn!

Library Leaders 2017-2018

These kiddos right here help make our library run smoothly on a weekly basis!  Pairs of kids come in daily to help shelve books, process magazines, wipe down tables and shelf markers, sharpen pencils, and basically do any job they are asked.  A HUGE thank you to these library leaders for all their work!

LCTV Broadcast Club 2017-2018

Last year I started a broadcast club for 3rd graders designed to share what is happening at LC with our students.  It also provides the members the opportunity to work on a deadline, write scripts, learn imovie, understand how a green screen works, improve speaking skills weekly, and work collaboratively to create a weekly broadcast.
This year, nine new 3rd graders are working weekly to produce our broadcast.  Check out our broadcasts below and learn a bit about what happens at LC. Plus learn about the weekly weather and a new joke or two!
