Mrs. Michael from Kingwood TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Build a Bridge, a House, a Car, a Mouse!

Help me give my students the very best STEM center ever with tons of LEGOs and DUPLOs to devise the perfect answers to building problems and math problems.

My Students

My students come to school every day excited and eager to try new things and to be brave learners. We know it can get messy, that we may make mistakes, but we always do our best and learn from whatever happens. My class is exceptional because of its immense diversity. Our school joins together low-income and upper-middle class neighborhoods!

Because of this unique situation, we have students of every nationality, religion, race, and family makeup.

We have special needs children and English Language Learners. Also because of this, we sometimes have a disparity between accessibility of resources, such as technology or school supplies.

A lot of our students have a tough homelife and many of our kids need to be on a free/reduced lunch program or a backpack program to have food on the weekends. On top of this, we had Hurricane Harvey last year, and the turmoil that it brought. These kids are resilient and brilliant and they all deserve the best opportunities and education we can give them.

My Project

STEM centers are becoming increasingly popular because research has shown that hands-on solutions to problem-solving is the best way to teach critical thinking to kids.

The most fun and exciting way to teach kids with hands-on materials has got to be LEGOs!

LEGOs are loved by kids far and wide, and by adults too! I will add these new kits to some LEGOs that I received from another teacher and together they should provide all the parts necessary for great solutions to math problems, building problems, and groupwork!

With the new LEGO kits, my students should become the best critical thinkers possible and have fun doing it, all while collaborating and strategizing as a team!
