Mrs. Montes from Covina CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The LEGO Experience

My students need opportunities to imagine, design, and build. The base plates will allow for six teams of students to work with a set of Lego bricks.

My Students

My students are the future! They are affectionate, supportive, innovative, creative, and eager to learn. Their smiles brighten my day! They motivate me to be the best teacher possible. That is why I’m here! With your donations I can provide these children with the best public education possible. I want every child to be excited about coming to school. Some of these students have hardships at home, so I want school to be a safe and fun place for them.

My Project

These awesome materials will allow my scholars to take part in a multitude of exciting STEM activities. Students will be challenged to imagine and construct structures using a variety of chosen criteria. The best part is that through this process they will be collaborating with their peers and learning how to work effectively in a team. These experiences will reach my visual, hands-on learners and enrich all academic studies, such as literacy and mathematics. I recently attended the Get Your Teach On National Conference where I learned some new strategies for using LEGOS in my classroom. I can’t wait! May the LEGO experience begin!
