My Students

Do remember playing Legos as a child or with your own children? Each time you sat down to play you had the world at your hands. You had the control to create and build new and exciting lands. I run a Lego Club at our school for grades 2-4. I have also created several interesting lessons using Legos.

I am the Gifted Specialist in a public school in the mountains of North Carolina.

My students come from diverse backgrounds. I teach first through fourth grade in small groups. My students are always up for a challenge. They thrive on challenging materials, probing questions and interesting lessons. They amaze me everyday with their "out of the box" thinking.

My Project

My students need Lego Building Plates. The biggest complaint I have from my kids is I do not have the building plates. They create these great projects only to have them fall apart. They become very frustrated. I would love for my 4th graders to recreate a famous painting using Legos. This will be nearly impossible without these building plates.

Having these materials would really encourage students create projects that would last and help keep their frustration to a minimum.

I have Lego structures all over my room. The building plates would really help me with organization and transporting their work to the display cases in our school. I several lessons planned using Legos. The building plates would help out implementing these lessons more effectively and in an organized way.
