My Students

Our small K-6 public school is over 40 years old, close to two military bases and many of my students have a deployed parent. According to the last US Census, the average per capita income in our area was 1/3 below the city average. The population around our neighborhood school is changing and our children are caught in this pocket of poverty. Many of my wonderful students are deemed at-risk. All of them qualify for free breakfast and lunch, but we are not a Title I school. As a result, we lack the resources and opportunities of other schools in our area.

Although my students represent the very best in America, they don't have the funds for school supplies, books or field trip fees, but they still want to learn.

Our student population is racially and ethnically diverse. It is 39% Anglo; 14% African-American/Black; 16% Alaskan Native and American Indian; 7% Asian; 6% Hispanic; 3% Filipino; 15% multiracial. 20% of our students are in bilingual/ELL programs, Indian Education or SPED programs. We have students from Somalia, China, the Philippines, Vietnam, as well as Natives from rural Alaska.

My Project

These 3Doodler pens allow students to "draw" three dimensional structures. 3Doodler pens can improve classroom learning by adding variety to classroom projects and products. The pens will provide students with opportunities to design and invent a variety of deliverables for their assignments, and teachers can use the pens to create and implement interactive lessons.

We will use these pens to increase student engagement and reinforce skills in math, science, and technology.

The 3Doodler EDU website includes many lessons for grades K-6 in a variety of subjects, including social and emotional learning that we can adapt for our students. Many educators remark on the usefulness of 3D pens in helping students to grasp abstract concepts. By incorporating the 3Doodlers into our lesson plans and using them during our makerspace time, multiple students will have the chance to engineer structures, sculptures, and create other 3 dimensional objects.
