Building an Education

My students need Legos, blocks and building materials to help build motor skills, socials skills and explore math and science concepts.

My Students

Do you remember playing with blocks, gears and other building toys as a child? My students would greatly benefit from the opportunity to play and learn from these materials.

My students are kindergarten and first graders with special needs.

They are in a self contained special education class with only 12 students in an inner city public school. They are excited to start school but already have delays in motor development, speech and language, social skills and academics.

My Project

These building materials will help my students with motor development, math, science, social and life skills. Block play will help with eye-hand coordination and visual perception. Creating patterns and counting will help improve math skills. They will learn science concepts through building ramps with the blocks and figuring out how to get the marble from the top of the tower to the bottom. They will improve social skills through dramatic play. Sorting and cleaning up will work on their life skills.

These block and building materials will help my students with special needs work on their delays in motor development, speech and language and social skills.

They will also be used to build math and science skills.
