The goal we have here in the Media Center at Sandy Lane Conservatory for the Arts is to make our area inviting and open.
Our students have now had the library opened for 2.5 years and we are refurbishing the books with our referendum money.
We want to bump up our maker space now. Currently we have book cases but it is difficult to keep materials on the shelf for the older students.
The materials will be used by K-5 students and with the new table and cabinets, students will be able to obtain the materials they need on their own.
Currently, we have the majority of the materials on an open cart and an adult has to be get the cart for older student to utilize the materials.

What will be done with my students

Maker Space is an initiative set forth by our district. Maker Space allows students to explore their interests and learn about how things work.
We have a variety of materials students can use to create 3D art!
We use many recycled items and donated materials. Some are too small for young children without immediate adult supervision.
Students are always supervised by an adult (usually myself) in the Media Center but I may be helping another student find a book or running a lesson. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students in our school are in class and extra hour every day. Maker space allows the students to take that brain break while using their brain.
This is a problem solving, sharing , self motivating area for our students to use their time to be creative and use their problem solving skills.
 

 

Describe the Students

We have 363 students currently. We have a very high mobility rate. 100% Free lunch
63% African American
30% White
7% Pacific Islander/ Other
We are currently a D school for the third year in a row. We are moving towards C, B, A.
 

 

Budget Narrative

Mobile Storage will allow materials to be readily available for students to use. Yet it can be locked to prevent other students from disrupting the materials.
The work center and art table will separate the areas for the maker space from the library area. The stools will be another factor in creating its own area. Creative Osmo games can be played with an Ipad and they are using math, ELA and problem solving skills to create an outcome.
