My Students

To be successful in today’s society, children need to be adept at science, technology, engineering and math.

I teach in a second grade special education inclusion classroom at a Title 1 school in Hawaii.

Students in my class have a variety of needs and challenges. Each student come with a variety of strengths and needs. Many of them struggle with disabilities that place them at a disadvantage. Often times, students benefit from many hands on experiences to help solidify concepts that are taught as well as express their creativity.

My Project

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are areas that students need to develop to be successful in today’s society. Hands on activities and projects help them develop skills in these areas.

Students need many opportunities for hands on activities to help solidify their learning.

Legos are useful tools for helping to demonstrate math concepts such as fractions, composing and decomposing. It is also an intergral part of successful STEM projects. Students use Lego blocks to design and create numerous projects.

Students also enjoy expressing their creativity through Lego blocks and just having fun! The possibility with Legos are endless! Who doesn’t enjoy playing with Legos?
