My Students

I am traveling from one school to another this school year. I will serve both schools. I have 20 students in my afternoon classroom for the 2018-2019 school year with a wide range of abilities, needs, and concerns. My students are in a low income/high poverty school in which more than 75% of the students receive free or reduced-price meals. I am in the process of setting up my new classroom and in need of some items. I want to make my new classroom as equipped and exciting to be in as the morning school classroom.

Despite some of the challenges they face in and around their environment, every year my students come to school excited, full of life, and eager to learn.

When children have a strong foundation of learning, they are able to stay on track to remain in school, graduate, and pursue post-secondary education and training to successfully transition into adulthood.

Children make this room their home for however long they stay and miss it dearly when they move on. No matter who enters through my classroom doors, they become part of our school family.

My Project

Preparing Future Engineers:

Teaching students with manipulatives that encourage STEAM in the classroom is important.

These fun items are learning tools in disguise.

Goobi will be used during stations!

My students need activities that will help their curious little minds grow by using STEAM activities that will help them learn how to think and solve problems on their own.

Having materials such as the Goobi STEM Kit and LEGO base plates will promote engineering skills in my Pre-Kindergarteners. These materials will also engage their minds in a way that will keep them excited about learning.

These resources will help make our science class more interesting, engaging, and extremely fun!
