Ms. Halsey from Sanger CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stop Motion, Legos and Literacy, Oh My!

Help me give my students unique ways to show their understanding. With these LEGOs and the Stop Motion App on the iPad, students will make their thinking and what they've read visible.

My Students

Our students are amazing and creative little humans. They love tactile, hands on learning experiences. Our school services many English Learners and students with special abilities who thrive when given tangible opportunities to express their understanding in new and exciting ways.

By incorporating technology and engaging tools, all our students can showcase their knowledge in new and exciting ways!

We would love to incorporate engaging, fun and exciting tools, like legos and stop motion for students to use to show and grow their creativity.

My Project

With the materials we requested, students will express their understanding and what they've learned using the Stop-Motion app and LEGOs! Students can create videos using their iPads and the green screen in the library to show the books they've read independently, demonstrate how to solve word problems in math and can create videos about stories they have written. After videos have been created, students will showcase them on Seesaw and will share them with others at our school and BEYOND! We also plan to have students make book trailers to encourage others to read some of the awesome books in our library.

We're excited to have our students learn to use new apps and engage with really exciting new tools!
