My Students

My students are amazing 3rd graders who love to learn, be kind, and make a positive impact on others. We are a Title I school that struggles getting the supplies needed, but our students use their creativity to help find new and different ways to learn.

Each day, my students come to school ready to learn.

Each day provides them with an opportunity to grow their brains and souls. My goal, as their teacher, is to prepare them not only for the end of year assessments, but for the world beyond. I want them to embark on a journey of being a lifelong learner.

My Project

Active learning or learning by doing is my favorite instructional approach. Using the Lego WeDo 2.0 and the Creative Lego Brick sets will encourage my students to participate in active learning by solving real-world themed STEM problems.

The hands-on learning, the collaborative play, and computational thinking will help my students develop the critical thinking skills needed for STEM education.

My students will have hands-on experience of trial and error problem solving to find faults in their designs as well as learning to work cooperatively.

This helps to prepare students for the ever-changing world of technology. They will be faced with taking abstract ideas into models that can be put in motion, touched, and innovated to be improved. Science helps children develop communication, organization, and their intellectual development. Please help me provide my students with the opportunity to learn by doing using the Lego WeDo 2.0 kits. Our students' STEM learning is a good investment because it will generate an interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
