I have a class of 25 kindergarten students. My class has 13 girls and 12 boys. I have 16 English Language Learners in my class and all of my students come from low income households and qualify for free lunch. At this time, one of my new students is living in a homeless shelter. In my classroom, two of my students have autism and several of my students are considered at risk academically. I also have several students who are very advanced academically. All of my students are amazing individuals who enjoy hands-on learning.
Building with LEGO will give my students the opportunity to experiment with patterning, counting, building and balance.
My students truly get excited about learning using hand-on materials.
Learning with LEGO bricks and plates will encourage all my students to work together to create amazing structures using spatial relationships. All of my students try to go to the block area during center time. I only have puzzles and a small set of Duplo blocks. If I had two sets of LEGO bricks, more of my students would have the opportunity to build and learn important concepts. The LEGO building plates will allow my students to take the bricks to the tables and work in teams of four.
