All Sorts of Making Going on in the Library

A tree went down in the wind storm today and knocked out power in the neighborhood. For the afternoon, our school was running on the generator, which meant no wireless access points, which meant no wireless, which meant there was no way to go forward with my afternoon lesson.

It was time to pull out the story telling games and Lego boxes.

Four classes came through the library and fell into a wonderful hum of productivity. 

Maybe I'll just pretend there is no electricity next Thursday afternoon...


  1. I remember in the early days of TAP administration pressured us to do lessons that matched with the classroom curriculum. It was not even a thought to use the library as a maker space. It would have been "not educational." Hopefully there is more freedom to learn and grow in other ways now.
