Legos, creativity teach responsibility
At AGM, K-5 students are learning that combining creativity and imagination can help teach responsibility and the importance of school community.
Kindergarten teacher Michele Craparo and librarian Carrie Potter collaborated to teach students a lesson that combined creativity, responsibility, and a sense of school community.
To encourage AGM K-5 students to return library books on time, each student was provided with a Lego piece to add to an evolving Lego creation. This provided the students with an extra incentive to be more responsible and provided an imaginative outlet. Overdue books decreased significantly with entire classes returning their books on time. Students were extremely excited to see the changes in the structure from week to week. This was also a great kick-off to AGM’s first ever Lego Club, facilitated by Craparo, which started in January for grades 3-5 and will start in April for grades K-2.
