Remember infographics from your school days? I loved them and still do. They are a great ways to see information sorted, arranged and presented visually. Take a look at this infographic below, the first made by kids, created for National Library Week. TeachHUB.com and Clever Girls Collective surveyed over 1,000 K-5th graders about school, their favorite books, and the role technology plays in their education. I love looking at this and education from a elementary school child’s perspective! Seriously, can you even look at it without smiling? 🙂
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!
We love visiting our library! I have learned a great way to encourage my children to love books and learning is to take them to the library often. My children melt into that place and will often ask me to start reading them their selection of books before we even leave. My son has gotten so comfortable at the library that if he wants a certain type of book he will go ask the Librarian. He usually does this without me even knowing and I will see him off with the Librarian poking through a shelf of books. I love that he is so comfortable asking for help and knows that he will find what he wants to learn about there. That is something I did not learn until I was in college!
This week may be National Library Week, but the celebration does not have to stop. Make learning a regular part of your life and use free resources like the library and free education sites like TeachHUB.com. TeachHUB.com is a free resource for teachers and parents who want the latest in education news and technology. You can see the latest articles from TeachHUB by subscribing to their Facebook page or following them on Twitter.
