My Students

Our school is trying something new this year, Power Hour. It is a time within the school day for students to have some freedom. Clubs, academic help as well as social time will be available for them.

Students will, with help, choose office hours and club activities to attend during the week.

We are making clubs available during the day so ALL students can be a part of multiple clubs that interest them (no worries of staying after school and arranging a ride). Although I teach art and have many needs in my classroom for art, the supplies I am asking for help with are supplies to start one of my clubs.

I want my club to be creative and artistic without actual projects. I decided one of my clubs would be a Lego club. Legos promote fine motor skills, improve creativity, they develop problem solving and mathmatical thinking, they improve self-esteem as well as develop lateral thinking and planning skills. It is also a time to destress and have fun.

In order to have enough Legos for a large club I need help getting started.

My Project

My Lego club will be a safe place for students to come during their power hour. They will have the opportunity to be with students that share their same interests. While having fun together, they will improve their fine motor skills, learn to work as a team, have a chance to be creative and develop short term and long term goals.

I hope to spark creativity within my students.

Creativity and imagination is fostered when students have no limitations as to what they can make. There is no right or wrong, so students can explore their creativity without the fear of failure.
