I Can Build, Can You?

Help me give my students new building block sets and STEM sets so they can learn to work together and use critical thinking skills.

My Students

My pre-k students are a fun, lively, and very inquisitive group of students. Almost all of them have never been to daycare and haven't even been to the library. My classroom is the first experience they have working with others that are their age.

We are of poverty.

I'm happy when my students have their basic needs covered, like jackets, backpacks, and being clean. When they come to school, they get to leave their home life behind and get to experience a fun learning environment.

My Project

We need to learn to work together and we love to build. Sadly, we don't have a lot of supplies to be creative with and to develop our skills. Most of the blocks and building equipment we have is broken. By replacing a lot of our broken or missing building sets we will be able to create and use critical thinking while working together.

Building and STEM sets will be used daily.

We look forward to using them as we come in to foster a love of math, science and creativity. It will allow the students to discuss what they want to create and try different ideas out.
