My Students

My students are amazing! They mainly come from homes struggling to put food on the table.

My classroom is filled with special education and ESL students who are burning with a desire to learn!

Many of my students struggle with behaviors and home-lives that make it harder for them to learn. All of my students qualify for free or reduced price lunch and come from low-income homes. Students are in mixed groupings to encourage cooperative learning and find the value and strengths in every student.

My Project

In my project, I have Lego sets to start my classroom collection of Legos. I plan on using the Legos to teach simple machines in science and, building numbers in base 10 and counting in math.

Using Legos, I want to engage my students in a new and exciting way in science and math.

I hope using the Lego sets, the students will be more encouraged and engaged to work hard and learn through exploration. I have a lot of ESL students who are still working on English skills. I also hope that with cooperative learning groups, students will be encourage to talk to each other as they work in groups and build more English vocabulary while learning!
