Chartiers Valley Education Foundation awarded a GIVE Grant to First-grade Teacher Ellen Zissis for the “Lego Your Creativity” project. Through the use of the Lego StoryStarter Kit provided by the Chartiers Valley Education Foundation, the students are able to enhance their literacy skills.
The kit allows students to build their story out of Legos and use it as a spark to create their writings. With the help of the StoryStarter Software, students can document their works and place it into a written format. This activity also connects with a workshop at the Bridgeville Public Library where students from other classes can participate in the lesson.
