When students visit the Skillin Library, they often have time to explore their interests independently though a variety of resources. This is a key opportunity for them to apply their learning in a low-stakes, play-based environment. Students may choose to use the time to read, explore learning apps and websites, make something out of simple craft materials, or use a wide variety of manipulatives carefully selected for their learning value and open-ended exploration. This page contains a selection of their choices and links to web sites that have been approved for independent learning.
The Skillin Library is filled with a variety of hands-on learning materials for students: LEGOs, magnets, electricty kits, and much more. Here are a few of the favorites.
