First Grade MakerKid's Club

Our last session of MakerKid's Club for this school year is scheduled for our first graders.  Because the kiddos are younger, I took some time recently to develop some new options for their stations.  I returned to school late Thursday evening to set up a total of 10 stations and Friday morning most of the students spent their time in the MakerSpace working at the Creation Station!  Mrs Haynes and I quickly learned that our younger kiddos just simply wanted to use their creativity and make whatever they wanted!  It is good to know what to expect from them next week:)
