    My Students

    This is a Gr. 3/4/5 Montessori class filled with intelligent, dynamic personalities and unique learning needs. These kids LOVE to learn with their hands and LOVE to share their passions. Many of them are challenged with written output and struggle with traditional models of learning (writing to show understanding). Instead they love to share their learning by designing, and building, products that represent their learning and their creative and critical thinking skills.

    How will this project impact them?

    At the heart of a Montessori classroom is experiential learning; children using their hands to manipulate materials in order to understand new ideas. These learning activities are not only fun, but also opportunities for considerable growth. The challenge of this type of learning it is centred on the PROCESSES of learning - the DOING part. It is nearly impossible to fill a duo-tang with experiences, but the kids are SO keen to share their learning in meaningful ways. We have been fortunate enough to have 1/2 a class set of ipdevices from previous fundraising and now all we need are the tools to BUILD with - enter Makedo™. It is a simple to use, open-ended construction system that utilizes reusable and child-friendly tools and up-cycled scrap cardboard. The 'magic' of Makedo™ is that children learn by doing, creating, and experimenting, and building independently.
