My Students

My students are always on the go! They love hands-on learning and learning how things work. The children love to build things and are constantly looking for materials to create with. We have begun to implement STEAM lessons centered around engineering as our school prepares for STEAM certification. We have in the moment learning throughout the day. Our school serves students with disabilities, gifted learners and students from military families. Most get their start to education in Pre-K and I want to make sure they get the best start possible!

My Project

We are in need of some new things. These new materials will give my students brand new ways to play outside and inside! Students will use the scooters, bouncy balls and cones to build fine and large motor skills. They will race both the scooters and the bouncy balls and we will discuss how to be a good sport. Students will get a cool sensory experience with brand new water beads for science! We will use the bright and bold paper to make Mother's Day cards and practice writing skills! We will use the microphone to build on speaking skills.
