My Students

The students that I have been so lucky to teach this year are an energetic bunch of hands-on learners! I am teaching an active group of kids with so many different qualities that are shaped from a variety of backgrounds. We are near a military base so many of our school families are already on their second or third school even though they are still elementary students. Being a Title I school, many of the remaining students carry a very different set of experiences.

These amazing students love to learn by working together in teams to solve problems.

These students have the motivation and love to learn new​ things. I can't wait to have more learning tools that will allow the students to develop skills that they will need to be more competitive in today's world!

My Project

How many times have you gotten a child a gift and they played more with the box than the toy? Kids LOVE to tinker. This project is ALL about nurturing, fostering and expanding student's imagination. Students will use the Cardboard Box book and Makedo tools kit to deconstruct cardboard boxes and make their own creations. They can use other objects from the makerspace including the pipe cleaners to attach the pieces together. The LEGOs, Brainblocks, and Playsticks will enhance my students learning through hands-on exploration. These materials will be used daily in morning rotations as well as to provide real world challenges.

Challenging our students using these materials will teach them to think outside of the box and further their problem-solving skills as well as their ability to cooperate with others.

This project is a fun and exciting way for our students to learn. Please consider donating if you can!
