Building for Success

My students need building blocks for indoor recess and fine motor skills. We also need storage boxes for the blocks, and safe non-skid stools for students to build large structures.

My Students

My students are gifted first, second, third and fourth graders in a low socio-economic area of Texas. They come from varied backgrounds and cultures. They are talented, imaginative, and creative children; however, they all have one thing in common - they LOVE to learn. Some are talented young artists, others are future novelists, one of them may someday lead our country. ALL of them will need 21st century skills when they leave public schooling and enter into the "real world."

My Project

Building blocks are my students favorite indoor recess activity. We have a few blocks, but with 30 students in the classroom having more would allow more students access.

The Citiblocs are excellent for building, as there are unlimited combinations.

Students love these blocks in my classroom. Some build tracks for rolling balls down, some build structures, others like building letters with the blocks. But the all time favorite is, who can build the tallest tower! Not only are these blocks great for getting students up and building, but the balance necessary to create the structures help to develop their fine motor skilss as well.

My students are asking for more building blocks, so that they can build more and higher. Their teacher is asking for non-skid stools they can stand on to build, so they don't constantly try to stand on chairs that could easily tip over. We are also asking for storage containers to store the blocks in, as the cardboard boxes do not hold up well to small students and often fall over and spill since they do not seal shut.

Thank you for considering our project and for your support of public education.
