Being a classroom teacher is an amazing job. It is so rewarding to see my students grow into strong readers all while building character. About a month ago my students and I got to participate in the First Infographic Made by Kids project hosted by TeachHub. TeachHUB.com provides the latest in education technology, news and tools. It’s a great free resource for all K-12 teachers as well as for parents.
To celebrate National Library Week, TeachHub sent my first grade class a survey to take. It was such a fun experience to see some of the answers that my kiddos chose. Some of my favorite answers were:
What is the most important part of a book?
What do you think your teacher does over Summer Break?
Answers: “Go to the Beach”, “Get sick”, and “She works”
What is a Card Catalog used for?
Answer: “Rich People”
I would have loved to be the one reading all of these answers and creating the infographic. They had to have been laughing the entire time. Here is the final product:
Do you remember the saved icon or using the card catalog? This survey did make me feel old. I realized that a lot has happened in technology since I was in grade school 20 something years ago.
According to the teachers at TeachHUB.com success in education starts with curiosity, and curiosity starts at home. For National Library Week, encourage your kids to explore a topic they’re interested in learning more about. Sit down at a library and read together – and ask them what they learned! To celebrate National Library Week my son and I are going to our local public library and signing him up for his first library card. Are you and your family doing something special?
