My Students

My students are creative, but very rarely have the opportunity and materials to show their creative side. With so much emphasis placed on high stakes tests, my students are burned out by 3rd grade and do not see school as relevant or a place for them.

My students come from diverse backgrounds.

They are mainly students of color who receive free lunch. Many of them speak a language other than English at home and many qualify for special education services. My students come to school ready and excited to learn, but by 3rd grade many see themselves as failing at school. They can and are even willing to show us what they can do, we just need to give them the right opportunity.

My Project

I am requesting a series of Lego kits in order to tap into my students' creativity in order to connect math to science and engineering. Legos can help build many 21st century skills such as: critical thinking, problem solving and team building in a fun and engaging way. Just think how it would be to be taught with Legos!

Help my students dream big by building small.

Give them the opportunity many of us may take for granted, building and creating with Legos. Give my students the opportunity to be successful now and into the future!
