My Students

Twin Creeks is a group of eager students who love learning! They come to school each day eager, filled with enthusiasm.

Our students come from diverse backgrounds.

Some of the students speak different languages at home such as Spanish or Mandarin. They have different family dynamics and their previous experiences influence their learning.

Although the students come to school with differences we can come together as a "family" for the school year. We work together to help each other and learn together!

My Project

Our school recently created a Maker Space where the children can use a variety of materials to design and construct various projects. This room will be used by the entire school, grades k-5. They will use their imagination to collaborate, learn and share. These Kapla Blocks are a simple design, allowing the students to create a variety of structures. There are no screws or fasteners involved, but they will use balance, gravity and engineering to ensure the structures are sound. They are reusable, allowing the children to experiment with them year after year. These blocks will allow the students to implement STEAM concepts while having fun!
