Help me give my students STEAM to boost communication and social emotional skills!
My second grade students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I believe in them and want them to know that they can do anything they set their minds to do! I am always looking for new and innovative ways to get them thinking, questioning, creating, discussing, and taking pride in their learning. With so many children having access to technology most everywhere they go, they are spending more and more time in front of a screen instead of talking and communicating with those around them. I continue to see a need for children to engage in creative play with each other to foster problem-solving, communication, cooperation, respect, empathy, and self-management.
Character education and communication skills lead to academic and life long achievement. My project is aimed to encourage conversations and teamwork between students in my classroom while engaging in STEAM activities. The interactions students have with each other to be creative thinkers, "construction workers", and problem solvers will further develop their conversational skills, character, and social emotional learning. I chose resources that my students will be able to choose from during our Friday Free-choice time when students are building friendships with classmates while engaging in educational activities to support their learning. The variety activities allow for collaboration, listening to others, working out conflicts, perseverance, community building, and are all STEAM based resources.
