Help me give my students a fun way to learn with Legos. The Lego table will serve as a station for their creativity. They can come back and continue working on their masterpiece.
I have a classroom of 20 energetic, curious fun-loving 3-4 year-old students who love to explore new things especially a new language. I teach students from a diverse racial background: Latino students(from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guatemala , Columbia), African American. Caucasian, and Asian students but one thing they all have in common is the desire to learn a new language.
When students enter my classroom, half of them only speak their native language which is Spanish.
The other half of students are monolingual and only speak English. Through music and movement, play and countless hours of bilingual read-alouds my students naturally learn a second language. They are not afraid or intimated by the language because we build a sense of community in my classroom in which we are a family and learn to trust and respect one another they feel comfortable to try new things.
What I enjoy best is seeing my students interact with one another and not allowing a language barrier to get in their way of having fun. As they first begin to learn the language, they use simple words to communicate as they continue to hear and learn the language they use 2-3 word phrases.
Using LEGO bricks is the perfect opportunity for building fine motor skills! LEGO bricks are a great manipulative to work the fingers as children build and even pick up LEGO pieces. Children love the thrill of building and they can do this for hours, building up strong little muscles in their hands that will help them do other skills, such as learn to write.
Cause and effect is one of the first science lessons a child learns!
Science is the driving component behind all creations that a child has. The foundation of science is to come up with an idea and to prove it practically. LEGOs do this naturally through imagination. A child simply comes up with an idea then develops it.
