My students are a diverse group of kids who come from all walks of life. I have kids who come from section 8 housing, as well as foster kids, and middle-income students.
Due to our high number of lower-income students (68%), we are considered an at-risk school.
However, because of our middle-income families, we are unable to get Title I funding which would provide so many more resources.
Regardless of socioeconomics, all my students are energetic, curious, and enthusiastic learners!
There are many benefits to offering a lunch time LEGO club. It improves math skills. For example, kids will have to do math to figure out how many smaller pieces they need to cover a larger one. Counting and ordering is another math skill. Science concepts are being tested such as: How high can I build this before it falls down? Literacy skills are being developed when students discuss and share what they are building. This helps with a child's narrative skills, vocabulary and creative thinking. Cooperation and other social skills are strengthened. They must communicate their thoughts to their peers and come to an understanding about what they want to accomplish.
Lego club promotes bonding, teamwork, problem-solving and creativity.
