Portable Lego Wall To Inspire All Students!

Help me give my students to be empowered- by just placing a brick on the wall they have contributed to their space around them! Lego base plates are not something I can buy on my own.

My Students

My class is so amazing- I am the only ESL Kinder teacher at my campus and I feel truly blessed to be working with such a diverse group of students!

Kindergarten is the last year of play (which is how young children learn) in their childhood.

My students are like hidden gems! They are so precious and have so much potential but it takes time to let play and explore their world to really bring it out. You want a child to learn at this age you can't tell them about a hammer you must put a hammer in their hands! Many of my students are from Low SES homes and don't have access to what many children take for granted, like Legos. Legos are not an inexpensive toy and when children have to move homes a lot they need easy to grab and go items.

I am also the inclusion teacher which means that some of my students have special needs-autism, learning disabilities, speech disabilities, and more.

My Project

A Lego wall is a fantastic way to empower students. With the placement of a Lego brick, even the youngest child can easily take ownership of the space around her. She can construct a building, build her name, leave a message, and undo her mistakes – and in the blink of an eye, the technology lab becomes hers.

Think of the empowerment bundled into the ownership of space!

When you own something, you are more likely to take pride in it, care for it, represent it, defend it, and share it with others. How often do we begin the school year with a conversation about sharing OUR classroom? And what actions do we let students take so that they feel ownership in their space? A teacher hanging student artwork on the wall is very different from students actively creating their own Lego art. How can we use these simple tasks to help students feel empowered?
