Maker Club Wraps Up!

The time has come…we had our last meeting of Maker Club yesterday. 😦 Students finished their fairy houses, perler bead projects, and littleBits creations. The fairy house project had been called “Miniature House Design” because honestly, I wasn’t sure that middle school students would want to make a fairy house. I thought they might be too cool for that. Turns out, they think they are cool, so calling them fairy houses didn’t bother anyone! Anyway, the fairy houses turned out awesome. The plan had been to showcase them at Highfield Hall next year, BUT a student just told me HH only runs their fairy house program every other year. BUT, why not bring the masses to Lawrence to showcase fairy houses?? I think we have a new idea on our hands!

When we first collected our nature materials, my office very closely resembled a forest…

While I am glad to have my office back, the project really was very fun and I am excited to amp it up next year!

Enjoy some of the creations:

Ain’t No Party Like a Meme Party!

In less than ONE MONTH all library books are due! And, you 8th graders might remember the memes that hung on every wall last year as a constant reminder to return your overdue books! The memes will be back this year…and better than ever!

My challenge to you: create an awesome meme for Ms. Hines to hang around school.

Rules:

  1. It must be APPROPRIATE! No violence or bad language!
  2. It needs to talk about overdue books, or returning books to the library.
  3. It should be silly!

Give me your BEST! Due by June 6th! See Ms. Hines for more details.
