My Students

I am a passionate and dedicated educator that works in a low-income/high poverty elementary school where 95% of our lunches are free or reduced. My kids are faced with daily challenges such as hunger, abuse, gang violence, and the unrealistic demand of growing up ahead of their time.

However, regardless of their environment they persevere and have a desire to learn.

They love hearing about current events, having passionate discussions that allow them to provide their opinion since many times they are not afforded that type of platform.

My Project

Having sets of Legos will allow for different real-world learning opportunities in my classroom. One way they will be used is as a STEM center. Students will be given different Lego challenges such as build a car, house, etc... and will be asked to recreate that challenge and even enhance their challenge. Another way these challenges will be used is by building 21st century skills of problem-solving and working together collaboratively.

Students will work individually and in groups to complete different challenges.

Students could take pictures of their results of their build and record observations through notes. They could collaborate on group findings by sharing through the cloud. This would also allow me to have activities for both my highest performing and most struggling students.

By being able to gift them with these items to make their work easier and more special they will continue to work hard. A little appreciation goes a long way to students and my students give so much.
