My community is nestled in the woods on the very outskirts of a military facility. Often times overlooked by travelers, we pride ourselves on lending a helping hand to neighbors & military families and raising our children in the ways of community service and gratitude. Our school reflects this ideology in the way we raise our students to care for each other through respect and honesty.
We want to prepare our students to be 21st-century citizens by teaching them core competencies such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration through STEM and STEAM based lessons.
Our goal is to remember and use the cornerstones of the past to help us navigate our future. Embracing a 21st-century learning model requires us to create learners who take intellectual risks, foster resilient learning dispositions, and nurture school communities where everyone is a learner.
Learning takes on new dimensions when students are able to get their hands busy and their minds focused. LEGOS allow kids to use a toy that they are familiar with to create a little community with a codable engine! They develop attention to detail as they follow precise diagrams and problem-solve step by step when things don't work the way they intended.
I want to host Spring "Full STEAM Ahead" Family Night; we need a LEGO Coding Express and a Community Minifigure Set as a fun, collaborative station during this event!
Using these LEGO sets in our classroom is one way we are upping our game to create curiosity and inquiry for our students. Students will have the opportunity to share their understanding with their families and peers as they collaborate on projects.
