Hello and welcome! I am excited to begin another year as librarian at Standing Bear Elementary.
This year, we will continue to work with maker spaces as part of the library experience. Through maker spaces, students are invited to use their creativity, problem solving, and collaborative skills with a variety of materials. Students will explore new ways of building and solving challenges with Tangrams, Brain Flakes, Magna-Tiles, and more. Students will also work to improve their understanding of technology and internet safety through lessons from Common Sense Media. We will also engage in inquiry research projects. Through these projects, students will learn how to ask questions, evaluate sources, and think about what they learned.
Kindergarten through fourth grade students who return all of their books by the end of the year will be entered in a drawing to win a prize. Students must have all of their library books returned by noon on the date of the drawing to be eligible to win that prize. Reminders will be shared on social media in May.
Dates for specific prizes are listed below:
May 17th: 25 students will win a mini hachimal
May 20th: 30 students will win a poster of their choice
May 21st: 25 students will win a prize box item of their choice
