Building Bridges to a Cooperative and Caring Community

Help me give my students these diverse building materials that will forge friendships and cooperation as students create their own dynamic creations

My Students

My students are a group of highly energetic and motivated First Graders. They love to learn and delight in sharing their knowledge with others. My students come from diverse backgrounds and our school is located in a high needs area. With that in mind, I want to give my students every advantage that I can to be successful and reach their full potential. We learn from one another on a daily basis and strive to be cognizant of what we can do to help others through learning and caring. Being able to fully meet the diverse learning styles in my classroom is something that I strive for on a daily basis. These building materials will help build and strengthen our community through creativity and play.

My Project

These materials will

make a huge difference in my classroom because the students need to be able to communicate their caring and thoughtful ways and what better vehicle to make this possible than Plus Plus Building Blocks.

It's right in the name- everything about these blocks will be a plus for my students! There have been some days that creating is all my kids want to do for choice time, but without the tools to create, we are left with ideas and no way to express our thoughts. These blocks will solve all of these problems and build our community.
