Friday Fun!

On Friday, the kids cheered on a group of SPHS graduating seniors, who had attended Small School. They were excited to congratulate them with a sign, and got a kick out of imagining that in 11 short years, they may be the ones marching down the Small School hallways!

In library, on Friday, Mrs. Mason provided the kids with 3 different building materials to build and create with.  This was a culmination to the last several weeks when Mrs. Mason read books about building and creating interesting projects. The focus in library has been "Makerspace." See below for the Wikipedia description of how libraries are creating Makerspaces.

"In a library makerspace or maker program, patrons of varying ages can work together, alone, or with library staff on creative projects. These spaces often give community members access to tools, technology, and social connections that may not be easily accessible otherwise. The goal of a makerspace is to allow patrons to learn through direct experimentation and from each other." (wikipedia.com)

The kids had a blast collaborating and tapping into their creativity with these fun materials!
