Ms. Miles from Sandy UT is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Operation Lego Maker Space

Help me give my students a textile challenge with a "lego" maker space in our library. Students manipulating objects and creating is productive, increases motor skills, & provides a break from the rigors of classroom academics.

My Students

More than one-third of our students are from low-income households.

Our school was built in 1973 and is a mix of low-income and middle class communities.

Some of our students have very challenging living environments. Some of our students have stable family homes. The beauty of our school is that we all come together. We support one another, help each other and are here for each other. We have several systems in place to promote a school family environment. We have rules and hold to the rules consistently, individually and collectively. I want to encourage my students love to read! We have had several reading incentive programs through the library and school.

My Project

Maker spaces provide a creative outlet that challenges and enhances brain activity while relieving stress. A Lego challenge area will increase learning ability via creativity as well as provide a brain break to relieve stress from the traditional classroom learning. I have brought in games from home and the students have loved the variety offered in the library. The library provides a safe space for students to meet their needs whether it be reading for academic or enjoyment purposes, using the computers, and playing games (chess, checkers, word games, etc.). A lego maker space would also enhance the opportunities and variety of activities in their library.
