My Kindergarten class this year is made up of 11 girls and 14 boys. They are a smart little bunch of children who are eager to learn. What I have gathered in this first month of building our class community is that we have different types of learning styles, different interests, and need reminders of personal space.
How do I engage all of my students in a high interest activity to help make learning hands on and fun?
This is my mission! To see my students get excited about an activity, a "Big Question" or what they create is so heart warming.
LEGOs are a high interest, hands-on center in my class. We learn about 3D shapes and get to practice exploring these shapes with LEGOs. It's fun to watch them problem solve when creating and helping others. We do a lot of STEM activities with them in class, too.
They all love to build and create with LEGOs but often pieces are everywhere because we do not have tables to build on.
If we were to receive two Lego tables to build on, we would have personal space to build in and anchors for our LEGO pieces. With two tables, we would be able to take turns with eight at a time during STEM center rotations. I also love that they will be close to the floor to sit and create.
