Thank you Donor's Choose and LC Families

I finalized our Donor's Choose project in the middle of last week and some of our products are already here! We have received our 3 Keva Contraption sets and our 2 Zoob kits.  We are just waiting on a large supply of Keva planks to complete the project.  Thank you to the LC families who donated to my recent Donor's Choose project allowing us to add more building materials to our MakerSpace.  I can't wait (and I didn't) to try these newest materials with kids. It was great timing as we are currently in an assessment period and we had just the right amount of time to try out these new products after completing our assessments.  So, we broke open the boxes and plastic bags and got busy today building and creating...such fun!
