My Students

My students come from very low-income homes. More than 90% of students receive free or reduced-price meals in my building. Students lack basics in their homes, much less the ability to utilize technology in their homes. At least a third of my building's population is not from America and don't speak English. We have more than 20 languages spoken.

My students lack of access to technologies at home makes it even more important to support them here at school with innovative technology that will expand their knowledge base so that they can take on the ever growing tech world as they grow into teens and adults.

My Project

So many of my students are super creative but don't have a good outlet to express their smarts and creativity. STEM is the perfect area for this if only I had plenty of materials for them to utilize. This is a material that would allow me to use with a Kindergartner all the way up to a 5th grade. It would be so versatile a resource as you help me build my STEM lab with wonderful and engaging activities. I would love for my students to have Keva Planks to help them build their marvelous ideas.

Over 200 of my students don't speak English as their first language but building with planks is going to help them cross that language barrier and that learning divide they face.

It doesn't take words spoken in English for them to express themselves in a building activity. They can show what they know regardless of the language they speak. It will also help those with learning disabilities go beyond the books and worksheets and be able to explore areas that they excel in but are unable to show in a typical classroom project.
