Building STEM-tastic Thinkers!

My students need the Lego Learn to Learn kit and a math station kit.

My Students

My students are imaginative and have a love for learning. They have a zest that makes them a lot of fun to work with. Each year our classroom size is growing. My first year there were 23 students, this year we are up to 27. One of my main priorities with my classroom is creating a sense of community and family.

My students are very creative, funny, and bright.

They love being challenged and being silly. We are a project-based school that uses technology in the classroom. For this group, I believe that having a designated floor space will give us opportunity to grow as a classroom family.

My Project

STEM is a vital part of my classroom. The students' engagement and curiosity is exceptional when we are doing STEM. They surprise me everyday with their natural inclination to solve problems.

By using STEM and Math hands on materials, all students will have an opportunity to explore a future career that may have not crossed their minds otherwise!

I want my students to feel inspired, challenged, and intrigued in the classroom. These supplies will help me to accomplish that goal!

I will be able to use the math kits as a hands on way to apply the skills we are working on for the week. I will use the Lego STEM kits to give the students opportunities to build while having a challenge!
