Mrs. Rocha from Greenfield WI is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the LEGO Coding Express, STEAM Park, and Tech Machines Set with Storage!
Our elementary school is a Title I school that has over 60% of students who receive free or reduced-price lunch. The community and neighborhood border the far Southside of Milwaukee and represent a highly diverse population. I believe in fostering an inclusive environment with all students including special needs and ELL students. I have 22 students from diverse backgrounds. All of our students demonstrate an understanding of respect towards peers and adults and we continue to foster an environment of creativity, inquiry, and teamwork.
"Play is the work of a child." Maria Montessori
At our school, we celebrate that children are naturally curious about the world around them. In order to encourage this curiosity, children need to have access to a wide range of learning materials for their play that increases critical thinking, enriches vocabulary, builds knowledge, and grows a life-long love of learning!
I have a classroom of very active and tactile learners who love hands-on activities. Creating STEM activities in the classroom will allow students of all levels to participate in projects and activities that develop their 21st Century learning skills. These materials will allow the students in my class to have opportunities to work closely with coding, design, and computer science.
By utilizing LEGO materials and experiences in the classroom, students will become engaged in the learning process with hands-on activities that develop their confidence and social skills to become lifelong learners.
Building new creations and integrating technology into the learning process allows children to relate to real-world concepts while building positive relationships with peers and teachers. Having these early learning experiences with coding will help me to guide my students from learning to think critically to creating new programs. My hope is to create a culture of learning that prepares students academically and personally for their future. These successes will encourage my students to continue coding, keep them interested in computer science, and see themselves in STEM careers.
