My Students

Being from a small bayou community, my students are not like most. They face different challenges than most. My students always strive to do their best work, even if it means they stay in during recess to finish an assignment.

They are learners by doing.

With our focus on testing, sometimes it is difficult as a teacher to incorporate engaging activities that spark creativity. My students often ask what can they do besides coloring. I see how just by giving them some basic materials, it sparks creativity.

My Project

My students need to be given the opportunity to be able to think at a different level. By having the different magnetic tiles, blocks and pipes, my students will be able to show off and will be challenged to think about new ideas, sparking creativity. The different robots will challenge my students to follow complex procedures and create something with their hands.

Sparking creativity is what students need and want.

We focus often on state testing and we forget to tap into our students' creative side. Items, like the STEM learning labs, will give them a great way to focus on a task and be creative with it too. They will be able to do this on the floor or at a low table all by using the wobble cushions.
