Sam Houston Library Media Center
Welcome to the Sam Houston Dual Language Elementary library webpage!
We will be having so much fun in the library this year exploring all the cool resources our district has to offer. Times are changing, and so are our libraries. We no longer just offer the books on our shelves. Students now have access to thousands of E-Books, magazines, newspapers, videos, games, and various other resources online. Throughout this school year, I will be teaching them how to access and use those resources.
We were also awarded a $1,000 grant to build our MakerSpace program in the library. With that money, we were able to purchase learning tools and activities such as Legos, K'Nex, circuit builders, an animation studio, modeling clay, crocheting tools, marble runs, puzzles, and brain builders. There is so much fun to be had!
Using the mentioned resources (and whatever craft supplies I come up with each week :)), we will be spending our time in the library creating, designing, solving, and exploring. Our goal, as educators, is to prepare our students to become productive and responsible citizens. In the library, we are going to focusing on developing the 4C's: Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, and Critical Thinking Skills. Mastery of those four skills gives our students the tools they need to be whatever they want to be in this rapidly changing technological world.
