Help me give my students a variety of hands-on materials to create new objects, enhance their imaginations, strengthen their problem solving and critical thinking skills, and build collaboration in our classrooms!
Our school is not just a building, but a community full of learners. We teach at a high-poverty school in a rural town. Many of our students face a variety of challenges at home but despite many of the personal struggles they face, their love for learning is apparent the second they walk through the door.
Our students genuinely love school and love exploring the world around them.
They are loving, funny, curious, innovative, and kind. As teachers, our goal is to help them become critical thinkers of the world around them.
Through this project, we want to give help give them the tools needed to face and handle a challenge, head on.
The blocks, magnets, and building books will help our first-grade teachers create meaningful, engaging work areas in our rooms for students to create. MakerSpace is usually defined as an area in a classroom where students can work together and think critically to solve problems and create new things.
Being able to provide our students with the necessary materials needed to create new things will not only strengthen their problem-solving skills but will also enhance collaboration in our room.
Giving our students hands-on opportunities to imagine, design, create, and try out new ideas will be invaluable both inside and outside of our classrooms.
