My students are the type that when they put their minds to something or, once an interest is sparked, they are committed to carrying out a task. They like to read and learn new things. My competitive group feeds off of each others' strengths. Many of the students come from homes that are not always the most encouraging or influential. However, despite the odds of some, my students still long to achieve and master skills that some of their parents never even had a chance to experience.
These eager and inquisitive beings long to be taught through innovative and technological means.
Hands-on activities are longed for as well. Our students want to learn; they just want the opportunity to learn in as many ways as can be offered. Despite the home life and day-to-day expectations from school and life, our students want to learn and want to enjoy doing it!
LEGOs require a great deal of critical thinking and I would love to offer more for my students in the library as they partner up to build, explore, and lift off with LEGOs. The LEGO pack that I requested will fine-tune the skills of those students who get a kick out of building things and making them move. Those students who desire to go in the field of robotics will get a jump start on trial and error with the set that I requested.
I can hardly wait to see some of the things that my students will create, with the LEGO pack, through their vivid imaginations with the help of their peers.
