My Students

My students are awesome. They deserve all the resources to help them achieve success. My students attend a Title I school that is considered high poverty. We have almost 50% of our students receiving free or reduced price breakfast and lunch each day. We even have a weekend food program.

My students are working extremely hard to be successful with the Common Core curriculum, and I want to get them all the resources to achieve this.

I appreciate how hard they work for me each day, and I know they'd appreciate any support you could give them.

My Project

Having more activities that involve STEM is one of my main focuses. These Blocks & Blueprints Learning Centers will bring that to my class. These centers will be used when the students have free time and especially when we do weekly centers. I know my students would really like to build these blueprints with these blocks. It challenges the students to look at all the different sides of a building and how it's built. I know these centers will provide hours of building this year and many years to come. These blueprints are going to make my students think like they haven't before, and I know that's a GREAT thing. I'd love the opportunity to stretch my students' minds with STEM activities, and I know these kits will do the trick.
