My Students

What are ways to engage students in their learning?

Our students are always ready and eager to participate in engaging activities!

Our school is extremely proud of its diversity and strives to serve all children and their families to the maximum extent possible. We provide academic opportunities that challenge and develop students, ultimately preparing them for a successful future.

Our students are always ready to learn because we, the teachers, provide the students tools in order to succeed. Every student has the potential to be successful!

My Project

As the educator, I want my students to have meaningful and engaging experiences in school. I have been able to provide that by collaborating with other teachers to create lessons that are out of this world. Also, my campus has implemented STEM Fridays! During the Friday mornings, our kids would be given challenges to help them build their problem-solving skills, creative skills, teamwork skills, and so much more!

It's time to implement LEGOS in our STEM activities and curriculum!

I want the students to explore and learning while using LEGOS.

I found several to infuse LEGOS with learning!

- The students can build math patterns to build and write math exressions.

- Participate in mini STEM challenges. The students will be given minimal instructions or a challenge to be able innovate different demonstrations.

- Building water dams with LEGOS.

- Creating a catapult using LEGOS.

- Building the water cycle with LEGOS.

- Solving math problems while using LEGOS as manipulatives.

There are so many ways to reuse LEGOS with learning.
