My Students

Do you remember getting hooked on playing with LEGOs as a child? I do! Creating castles, robots, buildings, or even entire cities out of the various LEGO bricks...the possibilities were endless! The 20 students at my Title I school share the excitement and anticipation of wanting to create with LEGOs and other STEAM materials in my kindergarten classroom!

The students at my school are curious, inquisitive individuals who are enthusiastic about facing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) challenges daily!

My students thrive when they have the opportunity to use STEAM materials in new ways to help increase academic skills.

My Project

These STEAM materials will make a huge difference with the students in my classroom by fostering critical thinking skills, collaboration, communication and creativity. My students will LOVE the opportunity to build with Legos, magnetic shapes, and the marble run. These activities will be used in Storybook STEAM lessons, science, technology, engineering challenges and so much more!

If they build it, they will learn!

Research has shown that when students have the opportunity to physically build with materials, they are also constructing knowledge in their brain. Please consider being a part of this exciting opportunity for my students to build their STEAM skills and knowledge!
