My Students

Many students in my classroom come in without any prior knowledge or experiences in an educational setting. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. Seeing the progress my students make is nothing short of amazing.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

They absolutely love hands-on tasks that are active and engaging. My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions!

My kids often face many barriers to education, but they know that when they are in school they are in a supportive environment where they can thrive both personally and academically.

My Project

My kindergartners love to learn and explore. They learn best through creative hands-on experiences. These Lego sets will provide them with the building blocks to a collaborative and creative mindset. The skills my students will learn will help them gain the attributes of good leaders and citizens, equipping them for their future.

Five- and six-year-olds are extremely creative by nature, but need an outlet to express themselves.

Being able to create stories out of Lego bricks will give them an outlet. Students will also gain fine motor and social skills by working together to build their creations.

These kits can be applied to various academic standards. Using an interactive approach will make the experience more meaningful to students. Students will also be provided opportunities to play with these materials during indoor recess and STEAM time.
