Kindergarten is a fun, energetic learning environment. We are very busy learning, working, creating from the minute we walk in our door until we go home each day.
I have a very diverse classroom, and I love it.
My students are from a variety of backgrounds, I have students who have never attended school and don't speak English to students who have had three years of preschool. Some of my students come to kindergarten with little or no skills and some are already above grade level. One of my favorite challenges is finding fun and innovative ways of meeting the needs of children from various backgrounds. My school is more than 55% free and reduced price lunch, so many of these kids do not have access to books, technology or other learning tools at home. By adding these much-needed supplies to my classroom I am opening a whole new world to many of these students. Regardless of their background though, ALL of my students love school and love to learn.
Students will be able to use the blocks to create castles, cities, towers, and whatever else they can imagine! The blocks will help students problem solve, be creative and learn to work together.
Students love use their imaginations!
Since many of my students come from low-income families, they don't always have materials like this in their home. By giving students the opportunity to use and explore with these blocks it will give them a chance to try new things in an environment that allows them to learn from others and work together. They may also discover that they have a passion for building.
This is a great STEM item that can be used year after year with my students.
