Library Centers Under Construction

My Students

Our elementary school in MO currently serves 570 students in grades 4, 5, and 6. This is a Title I school, and approximately 50% of our students participate in the free and reduced-price price lunch program. Currently, approximately 50 students receive food backpacks each weekend through the school's backpack program. More students are being added to this program on a weekly basis. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 15.5% of children in our area lived below the poverty level in 2014.

In spite of the many challenges our students face, they strive to be leaders academically and in the community.

We are a Leader in Me school, and our students work hard to integrate the 7 Habits into their lives on a daily basis through teamwork, service, and personal responsibility.

My Project

My students will use the building bricks, base plates, and the Brain Flakes set, as centers during their weekly library class. These centers will give students the opportunity to be creative, engage in problem solving, and practice teamwork to accomplish a LEGO challenge with their teammates. This project will provide the supplies for STEM activities.

Currently, the library does not have any building bricks or a Brain Flakes set for students to use for these activities.

Additionally, brick sets are expensive. This DonorsChoose project will provide the necessary materials for students to unleash their imaginations and start building.
