Mrs. Carmody from Westbury NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need to explore with Legos to expand their imagination, creativity and problem solving skills.
My students are a first grade STEAM class. This is their first experience with science, technology, the engineering design process, art and math! My first graders are super motivated to learn and have a thirst for knowledge unlike any others! I don't want their lack of resources at home to stand in the way of getting the most out of their education. My students want to be involved in engaging hands-on activities that challenge their intellect and push them to stretch their thinking and be proactive problem solvers! I want to provide them with every opportunity within my control and be a facilitator of their student centered education.
Benjamin Franklin said, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn."
Most of my students do not have Legos or building sets at home. They lack experience using their creative side and need to explore ways to enhance their problem solving skills. With kindergarten being so academically focused in the last several years, I feel it is important to bring building and exploration time back to the classroom. This is difficult for children these days since we live in such a two-dimensional world with tablets and smart phones!
Enthusiasm is the STEAM that Drives the Engine!
Since they are a STEAM class, we participate in weekly challenges that focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math. These items would greatly enhance these challenges and give them the foundation of building and problem solving that they so desperately need in order to thrive in all areas of their education!
