This week is the second round of sessions for our Year 3 team . They are focusing on 'under the Ocean' as a learning theme so I used the picture book "The Snail and the Whale" as an igniter with half of the challenges being focused on the book eg An Animation retell, junk construction building a Whale, Sea creature Zentangles and the other challenges coding and robotics focused e.g. Blue Bots, DASH and Osmo coding. It's interesting watching the choices that different classes make and how our students are now using a common language when sharing and discussing our skills and attitudes. Perseverance and problem solving is definitely playing a major role in the Makerspace!
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
