My Students

I teach a special group of students, who are inquisitive and creative. These 6th through 8th grade severe needs students are always asking questions. One of my students loves all things LEGO. To engage his interest, I have incorporated opportunities for this student to use LEGOs to retell stories or explain a science lesson.

These students have struggles, but they refuse to be defined by their special needs, they are embracing their strengths.

I want to be able to provide my students with the tools they need to explore the world around them. Even though these students have special needs, they still enjoy learning and when they reach those "Ah, ha!" moments it is really rewarding.

My Project

Students with special needs often have trouble communicating what they are learning. One of the best ways for students with special needs to process new information and to express themselves is through tactile learning. The use of building blocks to show what they know helps with frustration when they are having difficulty verbalizing or writing to show their learning.

These Creative LEGO kits will enable my students to show their learning as well as helping with fine motor skills.

Many of my students have difficulty with fine motor skills. These blocks will strengthen their fingers and, through a fun activity, help them to learn fine motor control.
