MakerSpace Moments in Literature combines literature with creative engineering design projects. Students respond to text with close read activities as well as develop ideas to solve problems from the story. MakerSpace Moments in Literature are perfect for the elementary classroom or the library/media center.

MakerSpace Activity: STEAM takes the E for engineering and the A for arts from STEAM and you get Maker Space Moments in Literature. Makerspace Moments In Literature allow you to do a focused Close Reading with text as well as extend on a piece of literature with the same function and creativity of a Makerspace using engineering tools to problem solve and create. A Makerspace is a collaborative area where students can think, create, share, and grow using an assortment of materials and technologies.

This Makerspace Moment in Literature uses First Year Letters written Julie Danneberg BOOK NOT INCLUDED. First Day Letters is the perfect way to build knowledge and understanding of the main character. {You do not need to have read First Day Jitters, but you will have to skip the extensive character graphic organizer.) Both books are available on Amazon.
