My students take what makes them different, and turn it into something incredibly beautiful. They think more with pictures, and speak more with their hands. The students in my classroom all have some sort of degree of hearing loss, and many use assisted listening devices such as cochlear implants and hearing aides, although a big focus is using sign language alongside oral communication for optimal language opportunities.
I am absolutely in awe by them, and I am forever grateful to be a small part of their lives.
They prove to me day after day that they are strong enough to keep moving forward despite the obstacles they face. We love exploring the world of math and science because of how visual it is.
In a world that mostly revolves around hearing, my students need opportunities that are more visually stimulating. This Early Simple Machines kit would help them understand what simple machines are, how they work, and why simple machines make work easier, all while having loads of fun. If it's fun, it will stick and they will learn more! I have purchased my own LEGO kits before and the data shows how much it helps them understand more difficult concepts. Kits like this one will be motivating for my students now, and all the students to enter the classroom in the future! Thank you
