Community Workers Are Our Heroes

Help me give my students community helpers minifigures, a reminder that they may grow up to be whatever they set their mind to, as long and they continue to work hard.

My Students

My 23 kindergarteners are five and six-year-olds eager to learn, love school, and want nothing more than to be exposed to new and exciting adventures. Unfortunately, very few of them have the means to explore and learn from the world around them. It is up to me to bring these experiences to the classroom and in the process teach them to read, write, math, science, technology, and to become outstanding world leaders.

My Project

This year our school did not get a chance to host Career Day due to school closures. I would love to deliver Career Day to each and every student’s home by giving them each their own set of community workers minifigures as a reminder that they may grow up to be whatever they wish, as long as they continue to work hard. I also want to keep their creativity going and give them the resources to do it at home. What better way to do this than by having my students build, learn, and play?
