My Students

My students are among the smartest, brightest, loving and most inquisitive students out there! I have the privilege of teaching kindergarten! Each child enters my room with a different story and background, and my job is to bring them in as my own and create a loving and safe environment for them to learn and grow. My classroom is full of 20 enthusiastic, engaged kindergartners. They come to school eager to learn new things every day. We are constantly pushing forward to meet curriculum guidelines and benchmarks.

My Project

LEGO is the ultimate Makerspace tool, given the variety of building bricks available and the infinite combinations that can lead to truly awesome things. This designated Lego Creation Station in our classroom will be a creation zone. We have found that broadcasting student creations is a great way to inspire others to want to make and create.

Our Lego Creation Station will offer a GREAT opportunity for students to collaborate and communicate while they are designing, tinkering and making.

Little engineers will love tackling designs on this Lego table.

Legos are a timeless classic for creativity, building, and fun. Students have free reign on their creativity in order to build something new and different. They can create whatever they wish with Legos and even integrate those Legos with other materials for their project. A Lego Creation Station is something new and different for our students to experience. Students may create anything new with Legos.
