My Students

My school family is made up of kindergartners who are excited to learn all about school and make their mark on the world. They need the tools to be taught 21st century skills while incorporating social skills. My students need to materials to help them learn literacy, STEM, and social skills.

My students are eager to come to school and ready to learn yet would benefit from strategic resources to help them succeed.

These activities will increase students independence and supplement our whole group learning.

My Project

My job as a teacher is to assist my students in obtaining skills they'll need to be successful and kind human beings in their future. To prepare my students to participate successfully in their future I need to expose them to current technologies, scientific methods, and critical thinking to solve problems. Young children learn best when they can be hands on in their learning and activities are simplistic, so they can be done independently and their knowledge can be built on.

Hands on STEM problem solving skills are critical in our current world.

Engineering earthquake kit requires students to create a structure that will withstand an earthquake. A brick building STEM challenge kit creates challenges for students to solve using a childhood favorite...LEGOS! A chain reaction STEM kit presents challenges for students to problem solve. I can build it architecture set presents students with real world buildings to create. These tools will help students learn 21st century skills in my kindergarten classroom through STEM activities.
