My students need a class set of clipboards and other various supplies in order to make networking and teamwork smooth and successful. The LEGO's will be used for STEAM activities to build problem solving skills!
The United States has been called, "The Land of Opportunity." Most citizens can describe the traditional "American Dream" as the right and ability to carve out any life you choose. Unfortunately, for children, not all opportunities are equal.
My students come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds and vastly varied socioeconomic lifestyles.
Each child comes with their own life experiences, strengths, and weaknesses. They all want to feel safe and successful, and every one of them brings the need and desire to be loved.
My students are curious, humorous, and zealous. They enjoy learning with their eyes, ears, and hands. As a classroom family, students work together, learn from each other, and strive for personal goals of personal best.
In today's classroom setting, staying seated for an extended amount of time is not typically in the plans. My students are continually networking with each other in order to learn. Clipboards for each student will make this process as smooth as possible.
In 5th grade, we LOVE STEAM activities.
I have a "makerspace" that includes various items that allow my students to explore by building and creating. The LEGO's would be a terrific addition to this space in order to let my students work together to troubleshoot and brainstorm with problem solving activities.
Each of these supplies will assist in making 5th grade for these students an excellent year!
