My Students

My students love to create art. As their art teacher, I like to provide the students with fun and engaging projects that will teach them new things. The students love to grow and use their imaginations to make artwork to take home to show off to their parents or enter into our school's art show.

They are amazing and curious students with such big imaginations!

I love to watch them grow throughout the year as we work on their techniques. With my students ranging from kindergarten through fifth grade, and also our special education students, I want to be able to provide for all their needs.

My Project

My students love Panlos STEM bricks, building blocks, and anything else that they can build with. I would love to be able to provide them with that resource. Using building blocks can help students problem solve and find ways to build a strong and durable building.

The different types of blocks will provide different types of building materials for the students to explore!

With the exploration of the different building materials, they will have to problem-solve to find out how they fit together, stack and not fall over, and find that strongest building material for their project.

These blocks are especially useful for my special education students as it helps with their dexterity and hand/eye coordination. I can also use it with these students to help further the learning of shapes, colors, and sizes.

The blocks will be an excellent tool to help get my art program providing a STEAM aspect to their time in my classroom!
