Building Blocks Help Little Students Grow!

My students need Lego educational and sensory toys to use during center times and for Friday reward time.

My Students

I teach children with varying exceptions such as specific learning disabilities, autism, vision impairment and cerebral palsy. My students are at least two grade levels behind their same age peers. We are a Title One school which means many of the children come from impoverished backgrounds. They have parents that are absentee, intellectually disabled or not well educated. Many students are part of the Hunger Project which helps feed them on weekends.

In my room, the students are able to work on their level and at the pace they need.

We are trying to ensure that they get the most out of their education.

My Project

My students are learning the basics.

When it comes to social skills, motor skills and hand-eye coordination, simple building toys are useful in teaching my students.

I will use the Legos and building kits to aid in fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and following instructions. The shopping cart is to use in tandem with our recently donated cash register. The students will be able to play store during math lessons centered on money. All of these centers will also be available to students on Fun Friday, when students who earn reward time are able to choose three centers for free play.
