Many of our students are wonderful, curious children that want to be inspired. I do everything I can, and my students respond so enthusiastically! They appreciate hard work, creativity, and FUN! However, with the fun comes responsibility. These students are learning amazing lessons in dedication, citizenship, and perseverance. They are able to get their hands dirty and have a good time, all while maintaining their focus on the objectives at hand.
My students are hungry for knowledge, yet we often do not have appropriate materials to guide them in meaningful instruction and experiences.
While hands-on activities are amazing tools to use with these curious learners, structure and personal responsibility for one's work is also very important. Building portfolios and connecting information across different types of resources is very exciting for them! They take advantage of every opportunity they are given to learn something new and exciting!
We would love to have some creative STEAM supplies in our art room! We would use these Lego-like building bricks and building kits to create STEM projects in class, as well as provide a creative opportunity for early finishers of other projects. Students would be able to access these supplies independently from a central location in the room, and we would build responsibility by having students keep them organized and clean as well.
Our students love to build!
Utilizing activities that include these building bricks will allow students to explore critical thinking strategies, improve motor skills, and learn to work together to create!
