My Students

Our students love learning and creating and we have a very diverse population. We serve all the Prekindergarten and Kindergarten students in our district so we are a very happy school.

My students are a very diverse population, high poverty school where all the students are on free breakfast and lunch.

Many students receive backpacks of food for the weekend.

Our students are happy and willing to learn, teachers get and give many hugs. They love coming to school and learn in many different ways.

My Project

LEGO's are a creative way for students to have hands on learning opportunities to build many STEM projects. They can build communities, habitats for animals, vehicles, and work together as a team. Classroom based instruction can be linked with lessons in the media center.

My students are young, Kindergarten and Prekindergarten and need to expand their creative minds by learning to build with LEGO's and working together.

Working with Lego's will allow them to learn critical thinking skills and how to work with others to create a project. Students can talk about their creations and the process they used to create and work together as a team.
