Student Engagement! A+

As I reflect on the past week in our Makerspace classroom, I can't help but smile. From my little year 1 students to my older year 6's, the level of engagement is exciting. I think we are onto something great! Nothing profound, just a bit of off-cut lumber, and an opportunity to explore and challenge student learning. Squares, prisms, pentagons, right angles, waka engineering, and design. The de-construction process is underway with my seniors as they square off against wooden crates, intent on up-cycling and giving these old dilapidated wooden structures a new lease on life. Cooperation and problem solving is rampant! With student engagement an obvious presence in this classroom, this year is looking incredibly promising. Bring on week 5!
