Goal

My goal of this grant is to provide opportunities for spatial reasoning, divergent thinking, and building confidence in children through imaginative play.  

 

What will be done with my students

Through the gifted and talented program, students in the school will have opportunities to build, construct, and design while working on fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. By "going back to basics" students will be unplugged and working together in engineering type tasks using KEVA blocks, marble runs, and thinking critically through Qbitz.  

 

Benefits to my students

Complex block play and highly engaging creative construction leads to high math scores and cognitive flexibility, the ability to quickly shift your focus from one relevant stimulus to another. The possibilities are endless and the encouragement of imaginative play is crucial to building the creativity in children at a young age.  

 

Describe the Students

My students are a part of the gifted and talented program at Gulfport Elementary. They are oftentimes high performers needing additional creative and critical thinking tasks. However, these opportunities will be able to be shared with all children in the school through academic incentives and creativity lessons.  

 

Budget Narrative

The following items will directly support the gifted and talented students at Gulfport Elementary through creative and critical thinking activities we would not otherwise be able to provide. Constructive play through KEVA blocks and patterns, Critical thinking through Qbitz, and creative thinking through Qba maze. The students would be incredibly grateful for the opportunity to engage in these high ability tasks.
