My Students

Our day starts with 3 minutes of silence. During this time, students get ready for the day, they reflect and think about how they can be their best. Each morning, we also gather together for a community assembly. In this assembly, we give announcements, recognize students, and learn about different cultures. My classroom is a place where students from diverse backgrounds are able to come together and share their experiences. Our school focuses on building a community of learners and supporting children to develop socially and emotionally, as well as academically.

They love to build and work together.

They are hardworking and caring. My students care about each other and make sure everyone is included. Our school is a full of lifelong learners; both teachers & students celebrate each other's growth.

My Project

These Legos will be used in many ways. One way is it will help students use their imaginations. Another way, is by sharing these items it will support their social interaction skills. Students will build, create, and problem solve structures/creatures/vehicles using and sharing these materials.

They will also use these Legos to figure out how structures work.

By putting pieces together they will see how pieces fit together or maybe not fit together. I have a very small amount of Legos now, I love watching them test and try out the variety of pieces. They can see how big or how high something can get before falling over - this allows them to think about using materials to make it more stable.

With more Legos, students can work together to co-create buildings, animals, cars, flying objects, and have fun!
