Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My kindergartners are creating life-long friendships! They are learning to collaborate, build social skills, problem-solve, and develop creativity and discovering who they are as individuals! They are eager to explore the world around them through purposeful play.

The students in my classroom come from a rural community with diverse backgrounds, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses.

Many students are learning English for the first time and rely on school programs for food and clothing.

While students may enter school with limited experiences, when these young learners step into the classroom, I believe they each have unlimited potential, and deserve rich, hands-on learning experiences to help shape their futures!

My Project

My students need a variety of STEM materials to build and engineer. Plus Plus Blocks and Brain Flakes are open ended objects that have unlimited potential for students to use their creativity and imagination to create and design. I can't wait to see the complex ideas my students come up with to enhance their learning!

Engineering and designing will build my young learners' problem solving skills!

The STEM kits in this project will provide my students with challenges to design their own playground and tree house. The planning, creativity, and problem solving will motivate my students to collaborate and use critical thinking skills.
