My Students

The students in my school have really taken to the projects that we have put together. The climate in our school is shifting to one of students who enjoy making, building, and learning how things work. The students have thrived in a hands-on environment that projects like this create.

My students have shown the desire to learn with new technology.

The students continually amaze me with what they come up with. They ask some great questions that they strive to find answers for. Throughout the day I support students from other classrooms with special projects that they are working on.

My Project

This year at our school has been amazing. Students throughout our school have been challenging themselves to solving the cubes. Students have also requested to have their whole classroom work on the cubes. We just don't have that many cubes at our school and this project will help give us the cubes and puzzles we need to support our whole school.

Rubik's cubes help students develop a growth mindset while fostering critical thinking, grit, collaboration, and communication.

The students will not only work on solving the cubes but will also be able to do so much more. The puzzles that are part of this project will also engage them in many exciting ways that the cubes can't do. Beyond just solving the cubes the students will also be able to create mosaic art with the cubes. These puzzles and cubes will support all the classrooms in our building by allowing the teachers to engage their students in fun and exciting lessons involving science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

This project was put together because the students have overwhelmingly asked for this.
