I work in a Title I school in a small community with an amazing group of eighteen kindergarten students and their families. I say families as well because I truly believe in educating the families as well as the students.
"Children should leave each day with smiles on their faces and stories in their hearts!" Author unknown.
The school I work in has had a lot of turnover with staff during the last couple of years, and some of that has to do with the dynamics of the area but also within our community. Working with these families truly makes you go the extra mile to help the families and students have a better life when they walk through your classroom door.
Many of my students are English language learners from single-family homes, have no pre-school background, and their families struggle to make ends meet. Incorporating activities and engaging learning opportunities in my classroom that follow students home is one of my goals when families have me as their teacher.
Kid K'NEX connect science, technology, engineering, arts and math within each rod and connector building sets. Boys and Girls of any age and skill level can boost their knowledge of STEM subjects with these building toys.
Kid K'NEX Education sets are designed to maximize student engagement and provides students with hands-on inquiry-based lessons that help teach STEM topics and are aligned to educational standards.
Students can receive many educational benefits from building with K'NEX such as: Sharpen their focus and patience, build fine motor skills and strength, encourage mind usage, develop problem-solving skills, introduce them to different subjects - math, science, arts, and even engineering.
Students would love the opportunity to showcase their creative side and having these materials would be a great way to start doing that.
