Help me give my students the experiences they can only get when they can use their imagination with the Lego and Stem sets. Help the students learn to utilize computers easily with computer mice that is their size.
Our class is a 1st and 2nd grade Montessori class in a public school. My classes are usually almost an even split of first and second graders. Nearly all of the students in my class come from a low socioeconomic background and do not have access to a lot of things children in other areas or situations have. I try to make up for this through our lessons and work to find ways to allow them to gain experiences.
My students are kind, generous, and very inquisitive, keeping me on my toes with their curiosity of the world around them, which they know I love.
They are a great group of students who deserve to have a wider range of experiences than their situation allows. As a teacher in a Montessori class, I try very hard to fill the gap. I also try very hard to make our classroom a very comfortable and inviting environment that allows them to explore, learn, and grow.
The computer mice are sized much more appropriately for children and will make it much easier for them to utilize technology in their learning. Students will better manipulate these computer mice which will allow for less frustration and better concentration when using chromebooks or ipads. These mice will fit their small hands.
The Stem and Lego materials will help the children put their learning to action.
They can use their imaginations to explore science. Most of my students have not had the opportunity to explore Stem materials or Legos. This will enhance their hand eye coordination and problem solving skills.
