My Students

Throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic, my seventh grade students have missed the consistency of a traditional school day. Along with the challenges that come as they mature and change from middle school to high school, the pandemic has introduced a different way of learning. Students still need to express what they’ve learned with hands-on learning. There is a new challenge to still engage students with hands-on, academic resources while staying safe during the pandemic.

Students still like and need to manipulate objects to assist in the learning process in tandem with written and oral communication.

Using LEGOs in ELA and Social Studies has brought a rich depth to my students' ability to communicate their learning. The opportunity to expand STEAM with LEGO BricQ Motion Prime increases students’ problem-solving skills, ability to connect with more than one subject, and create LEGO builds that move. This helps them learn to reason, communicate, write, and cite evidence while they use their hands.

My Project

Our LEGO Master Educator classroom needs your help as we will grow from 40 students to 90 or more! The materials will help students in our LEGO Master Education classroom expand their knowledge as I loop with them from seventh to eighth grade by allowing them to use LEGO bricks and robotics. They will receive an introduction to LEGO robotics with LEGO SPIKE Prime. All of the materials from LEGO bricks to people to LEGO SPIKE Prime are needed as our student population increases on team and our curiosity deepens. This will help learners ranging from those who are abled differently to advanced learners.

Through hands-on exploration, students delve into deeper debates, richer writing, and greater reading comprehension.

The purpose of using LEGO bricks and Education tools in an English classroom is to expand students' use of language. One example of how students will use the LEGO bricks in eighth grade is by building a theme park with through project-based learning with "The Odyssey." Students will also build a scene to reflect their lives when they write memoirs. Using this kind of hands-on learning enriches the vocabulary used by students when they speak and write. Students also use LEGO builds to show the meaning of vocabulary word instead of filling in a blank for a sentence.

The materials from this grant also benefit the students who will loop with me as we enter eighth grade in the 2021-2022 school year because they'll grow from LEGO beginners to LEGO leadership. These students will be able to show other students from the first day how and why we use the LEGOs in English. We need a greater number of bricks and people as we grow, and we want to get our robotic hands moving with the LEGO SPIKE Prime.
