My Students

I have 23 five and six year olds in my classroom this year in Gilbert, AZ. They are all excited and willing to learn new things.

The mind of a child in Kindergarten is just like sponge, ready to absorb so many new things and learn so much.

These stations would help them to learn new things and use their imaginations.

It would really help me to build some STEM in my classroom if this project would be funded. Thanking you in advance

My Project

Students will learn to build, create, design and collaborate. They will follow directions and steps as well as use their imagination. Once they have learned to do it by following step and directions, we will have them discuss and design on how to be a similar structure. They will expanded their education which they can take beyond the classroom.

It is so important to expand a students mind as well as their skills beyond the basic reading, math and writing.

These stations will help me to bring STEM into my classroom at an early age. Small groups of students will work together using blocks to design a bridge or castle. It will help them to learn to investigate as well as explore different ways and new things. The students will then collaborate to explain to another small group how they came about building their bridge or castle. Then the second group will share their ideas. They can then compare and contrast the two bridges/castles.

STEM is helping these children to prepare for the older grades for deeper learning. I am excited to see the new level of learning in my classroom. I love to see the look in their eyes as new things come together. Hopefully, this will help lead to many new things for these kids.
