My Students

This is a busy, eager diverse group of students. They are full of energy and ideas. They are a curious group. They love reading and exploring new things. My students are on the move and always ready to share their thoughts on what we are learning about.

They love the opportunity to learn through creating and building.

They each have their best learning style and way they work best. They are motivated and ready to try new ways of learning.

My Project

Students have different learning styles, skills and talents. Having a makerspace in the classroom gives them an opportunity to explore and discover ways that inspire and build skills. Offering a dedicated makerspace in the classroom will give students more chances to explore and discover and show their skills in a new way.

Giving students the opportunity to use tools like Magnetic Blocks and Tiles, Goldilox Construction kit, and Simple Machine Lego kits is a way to inspire the next generation of problem-solvers and innovators.

Through their exploration and collaborating students are able to use their critical thinking and inventing skills.
