I had my last official Librarian / Digital Learning Specialist PLC meeting.  I have really enjoyed the last five years working with such a great team! I will miss you all!  Go Team Library!
This week in the library Mrs. Lewis's elementary students learned about inventor, Elon Musk.  Through their research, the students discovered that Musk coded and created his first game at age 12.  The students got their chance to code as well by creating code for Minecraft on during a Makerspace activity. 
This week in the library at Gateway, the students have been learning about Rube Goldberg.  They have also taken part in the Maker activity of creating their own Rube Goldberg machines. 
Today in the Edgewood library, the seventh grade social studies students were researching about the early lives of their historical twins.  The students have been match with famous historical figures, and they must learn how they are like these famous people from history and how they are different.  The librarian, Mrs. Eberhardt, worked with the students on how to find the best sources of information for their research.  She had the students use the Biography in Context database as well as the Explora Middle School database.  She also showed the students how to cite their information and record their notes. 
This month in the Gateway Library students are learning about inventors.  This week students researched and read about Ole Kirk Christiansen and learned how he created and refined LEGOs.  The students also took part in a LEGO design Makerspace activity.
April is School Library Month. As part of the celebration for School Library Month, the students at Jefferson Elementary have been participating in a reading contest.  The students have been writing reviews on the books that they are reading.  For every book review they write, the students get to place a ticket in for a prize drawing that happens every Friday during the month of April.  Don't miss out on all the fun - keep on reading!
