My Students

Have you ever watched a child work as they use their creativity, think critically, and plan interact with peers as they grow their imaginations with LEGO? The moment they begin to build, their excitement is tangible.

Our students live and attend kindergarten in a high-needs urban community, where 75% of families live in poverty.

There are high drop-out rates, and families and staff know that setting our students up for success later in life starts now. We work together to help students make connections to each other and the world around them, build vocabulary, teach social skills, and develop the grit and academic skills that will serve them for years to come. LEGOs are the kind of tool that most of my students will only have access to while at school.

My Project

I am requesting 1 LEGO vehicles set, 1 LEGO DUPLO tubes set, 1 LEGO brick set, 1 LEGO community minifigures, and 1 LEGO building plates set to unleash their creativity, problem-solving and analytical skills! My students will use LEGOs during choice time to plan, organize, build and create with other students in small groups. The building sets and plates will give them the tools they need to construct the structures of their dreams! Community figures and vehicle sets will directly tie in to our Social Studies unit on vehicles, transportation, and community helpers. With all of the LEGO materials, my students will have time to practice and learn vital social skills, develop their grit, creativity, and imaginations, and be earnestly and honestly engaged in dynamic, research-driven toys.

Anyone who has used LEGOs will agree that they are an essential part of childhood (and adulthood!).

Every child deserves access to high-quality, developmentally appropriate toys. You may help inspire a future engineer or architect - help us unlock their potential!
