Help me give my students an outlet to build, communicate and develop critical thinking skills in a fun space using K'NEX kits.
The students at my school are inquisitive, diverse and many are hands-on learners. The students I directly service are all students with special needs and they are in a full inclusion setting. I currently co-teach in math and reading. My students are able to learn with students who do not have a disability which makes learning different, engaging and a bit more challenging. My students need to learn content differently. They also need to practice working with others and learn how to problem solve in all areas - inside and outside of the classroom.
My students try extremely hard and persevere through challenging task but they continue to need information presented in multiple ways.
This year I am sponsoring a morning club that will meet before school starts. I am always looking for new ways to connect with the interests of my students. Sponsoring a K’Nex Club will not only be good way to bring my students' common interest together, but it will also develop the four C’s model: communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking skills.
It is my goal to develop problem solving strategies in the minds of my students so that they will be able to attack problems without fear.
These construction kits are a truly exceptional learning tool and fun to use. Unfortunately, we do not have enough K'nex materials to keep the kids' constructions together for all to see. I purchased the first set but can not afford 5 more models. I really want my students to watch their projects grow week to week and not have to worry about building it quickly so the next group of students can use the materials.
