What does Mrs. Means do during Makerspace?

As many of you know this year at Brecknock we have an exciting new program called Makerspace! Our Makerspace teacher, Mrs. Carter, teaches students how to effectively collaborate, create together, and explore. But what do I do during Makerspace cycle? During Makerspace cycle, I am able to go into the classroom and collaborate with our teachers here at Brecknock to integrate information literacy and research skills into our curriculum. This cycle, I was able to work with Mrs. Blankley’s ELA class. Mrs. Blankley’s class is working hard to become Recycling Advocates as part of their performance task. Students worked VERY hard to compose a letter to Mrs. Andersen purposing some changes around school that would help us recycle more effectively.

They will have to work together to solve the challenge! Our first Makerspace cycle was the first cycle of school! Take a look at what the students made.

Summer Library

Students had the opportunity this summer to attend Summer Library at Brecknock Elementary. For five Monday nights, students and their families could come to the Brecknock library, check out books, and participate in fun activities. Some highlights from Summer Library include a visit from former Librarian, Mrs. Putt, and a visit from some favorite Star Wars characters. Thank you so much Brecknock families for attending Summer Library! Mrs. High and I look forward to seeing all of you on the first day of school!
