Mrs. Griffin from Wilson AR is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students basic supplies of crayons, crayon boxes, pens, clipboards, colored paper, and scissors to help them with STEM activities in my class.
My computer lab is full of Kindergarten though 6th grade children with wild imaginations, boundless energy, and natural curiosity. They come to school ready and eager to learn. Most come from low-income homes, some relying on grandparents as their only source of guidance and stability, but they all have the ability to be life-long learners. Being a rural area, not all of my students have internet access, therefore we must maximize the opportunity to enhance our learning with the use of technology while they are at school. Every student who enters my room deserves a unique learning experience and it is my goal to provide just that in a safe, enchanting, and digital environment.
My students are rock stars and it is my goal to help enhance and transform the way they learn.
I want my students to understand that their surroundings do not define them. They can overcome obstacles and hardships and go on to be the first college graduate of their family or a Nobel prize winner in spite of their socioeconomic challenges.
I am requesting materials that will help my students with STEM projects and activities. With more and more emphasis in education being placed on STEM and STEAM, these resources will provide my students with hands-on experience to develop these skills, which are highly demanded in our workforce.
Students will work in groups or teams on the activities and this fosters critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills.
They will use scissors, crayons, pens, and paper to create projects and solve tasks that will arouse their imaginations and spark creativity. These situations will provide a solid background for building these highly important skills. We will use the plastic boxes to create "STEM Boxes" to hold the STEM materials. Stickers will be used for rewards and motivational items.
These engaging activities will promote problem-solving so students can build an interest in a rewarding field or career that is in increasingly high demand. As a bonus, these skills will be utilized in all academic areas across the curriculum as they continue their education.
