My Students

The students and staff in our school are amazing! We are a Title I school, where many students live in low-income housing, hotels, shelters, or with other families. Every student here receives a free breakfast and lunch each day and many receive food to sustain their families over the weekend. Some only speak Spanish or French at home but they all love to come to HRA because they know they are loved and treasured by each of us. We are a school that works very hard to make sure our students and their families are given every chance possible to succeed!

My 5 and 6-year-olds kindergartners are some of the kindest, sweetest kids I have had the privilege of teaching.

They help each other without being asked to do so or to receive praise for doing it! Whether it be a child with special needs who needs help finding the right page or the child with a broken arm who needs help carrying his lunch tray, they are ready to assist. They are also very eager to learn and being the sponges, they are, they are learning very fast! I just want to make sure that they have fun too!

My Project

These wonderful bLEGO® bricks will inspire a child's natural curiosity to explore and learn together while having a blast. Included in these kits are 1000’s of different size blocks that allows the kids to use their imagination and create figures or buildings or what ever their little minds can think of! They will develop fine motor skills all while having fun.

I mean seriously, what child do YOU know that would rather do worksheets when they could be playing…I mean learning, with LEGOS??

Who knows where their imaginations will take them! A handful of LEGO® bricks can be a work of art, a memory, a fantasy, or a complete story. At least two mornings a week, I plan to use these kits during morning work as STEM bins placed on their tables when they arrive. This will be a great way to get their minds creating together, yet start their day in a fun interactive way.
