Makerspace 2017 is off!

This week we opened Makerspace to students.  They come in one morning a week, depending on grade level and work on projects.  This week, they created bookmarks, made a Flipgrid presentation on Makerspace rules, and created a large drawing of outer space.

We are working toward being independent, and making more things that they can take home since they love to do that.

Next week, we will add some STEM bins that students can work on independently.

Watch here for more fun information and pictures!

Meeting for 4th and 5th graders!

Calling all 4th and 5th grade readers!  (That’s ALL of you!)

 

Our informational meeting will be Thursday, August 24 from 2:30-3:15 in the Media Center. Come meet the coaches-Mrs. Biello, Mrs. Dupuis and Ms. Judd, get all the information you want about Reading Bowl and maybe check a book out to get started!

Parents are welcome to attend. We love volunteers!

Science Lab and Technology

We have been lucky enough to be included in Science Lab Fridays that Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Eitenmiller are doing. Today, we worked with kindergarten to learn what tools a Scientist uses in their work.  In the Learning Commons, we did the technology piece and students showed us in a video what they have learned. Watch and enjoy!

 

The Media Center is open!

Today is such an exciting day in the life of the Keheley Media Center! We opened for students.  First up is the fun of using Flipgrid and students being able to see themselves on the screen. I asked a simple question, “why do you read?”.  Here are their answers:

 

Reading Bowl

Hello readers and parents!

 

Welcome back to school!  As you read the Reading Bowl books, I’d like for you to keep a few things in mind.

  1. Please read carefully!  We will have  question and answer sessions as we move forward.
  2. Parents – some of the books have topics that you might want to check out before reading. Please read reviews and synopses carefully before choosing to read the books.  You may even want to read some of them together!
  3. Lily and Dunkin, although listed, is not being used by Cobb County this year.
  4. We will announce our first meeting shortly. Looking forward to meeting with all of you!

End of the year!

I can’t believe it’s the end of the year.  We’ve had such a fun year. My Media Helpers and KNN Kids have been wonderful to work with and we’ve had a great  time making all kinds of things.
