My students need science experiment books, hands-on activities, and an experiment bundle to give them visuals and the opportunity to explore with STEM and Engineering to get them ready for the 21st Century.
My students primarily live in neighborhoods where there are apartments and motels. They are transient families facing financial challenges. Despite their situation, our students look forward to coming to school and be challenged. Our school is known for assisting students of multiple nationalities who speak different languages and are learning to embrace education as a key to future success. Every student regardless of their background, should be welcomed and know that school is a safe haven where they can learn and develop coping skills and a good working ethic. By greeting each student with a warm smile, lets students know that they need to ready to learn.
I am a 1st-grade teacher at a Title I school in Las Vegas where 100% of our students receive free breakfast, lunch, and some take a weekend sack.
But despite some learning challenges and hardships, every student should begin their day by feeling loved and confident to learn and try their best.
Having students from different backgrounds has some advantages and this is why it is important to ensure that our future leaders are exposed to STEM. By enriching students with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math will enable them to collaborate with hands-on activities. The science books will provide students with visuals to build background knowledge of all the possibilities and exposure to engineering.
Students learn from exposure to experiments and by enriching their thinking, it will provide interest in the science fields.
Our future generation has to be exposure to phenomena in order to create opportunities as their career jobs have yet to be created. The more students think about possibilities the better they can become at troubleshooting and finding different ways to solve problems and find solutions.
