Building with Blocks = Building an Imagination for their Future
My students need building bricks, and PowerClix blocks to build and create using their imagination beyond the curriculum math games.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My first graders are college bound! We work together to set goals and aim high to attain new reading goals regularly. The more we read, the more we learn and grow to attain our goals.
My first graders are a diverse group of students who come from diverse working families.
As the only Title I elementary school in the district, the students continue to make the greatest growth and often exceed our expectations. Our school community is family oriented and many families try to be involved either as volunteers in the classroom, at school events or even just helping their children at home. Not all students have involved families, but they still work hard and often harder. No matter what, they all try to make good choices every day to work toward their goal of being college bound.
My current classroom only has one shoe box-sized set of building blocks and one small box of magnetic blocks for the entire class. There are not enough materials for the number of students who want to build and create for math and choice time.
Students have math games, but they also need time to build and use their imagination in creative ways to develop different skills and problems solving strategies.
During math centers and choice times, students would have an opportunity to build with the building blocks and PowerClix Solids and sets daily that they may not have access or time to use at home.
