Maker Corps Camp Week 1 @make @makeredorg #possibilities #myjobisfun

I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I was selected to be a part of Maker Corps at EdVenture this summer. I AM SO EXCITED to learn more about the Maker Movement and how best to incorporate it into what I do in my elementary school library. I just finished watching the Google Hangout for Week 1 and unpacking my Possibility Box.


Each week there will be an invitation to share what we create. The first invitation is to share what we are most interested in/excited about when unpacking our box…I have always been a nerd for school supplies, so what I pulled out first was the markers and notepad. I also got out the box of legos. I am reading books and talking about birds with my Kindergarten classes right now and am generally a lover of early morning bird songs (thanks, mom). So, I integrated all of that into a stop motion movie. You can check it out at this link: 

I can’t wait to take this box to school next week and let some of my kids explore! They will make something MUCH COOLER than me, for sure!

So fun! Can’t wait for Week 2!
