My Students

I am a second-year teacher preparing to welcome a new group of first graders. Our district provides families in our community with a school of choice option. This means our school serves students from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds with over 40 percent of our students qualifying for free/reduced lunch.

I look forward to improving and providing engaging and memorable learning experiences for my students.

One thing students consistently find engaging is hands-on learning experiences. When students are allowed to explore, experiment, and collaborative it fosters problem-solving, social, and critical thinking skills. These are all valuable skills necessary to excel for a lifetime.

My Project

These hands-on STEM bin activities are not only developmentally appropriate for young elementary school students, but they help to build foundational engineering skills. Students can choose from 22 different manipulatives as they work through open-ended STEM activities. Challenge Yourself task cards allow students to take their structures to the next level by encouraging students to examine and make enhancements and improvements to their structures.

The best part is how students are fully engaged while working to think divergently, inventively, and imaginatively.

The practice students exercise to solve problems within specified parameters is experience that is undoubtedly valuable and useful for a lifetime.
