My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school in my very large district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. I strive to create a safe, caring, and inspirational learning environment for them all at all times.

My students are little tornadoes from the moment they enter the classroom, whirling around the room involved in all sorts of learning.

They like to move, they love to be part of our community, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free breakfast and lunch based on their socioeconomic status. I hope to create lifelong learners that enjoy their education and strive to be the best that they can be.

My Project

Research has shown that children who learn through play are more engaged which leads to a greater retention of skills. Having a Lego center in my classroom would give children a chance to build from their imagination and use the scenarios to learn basic problem-solving and communication skills.

I would also like them to use Legos to create stories for their writing, they use graphic organizers to start their story and then they create scenes for their story as illustrations.

They help children to develop planning skills as well as lateral thinking. The muscles needed to pick up the tiny pieces are strengthened which will in turn aid with writing.

I have a small set of Legos which have become a favorite go to inside the room especially during inside recess and Fun Friday. To know that so much good comes from such a basic toy, makes me want to grow this station to impact the minds of as many children as possible.
