Engineers and Fairy Tails

My students need more problem solving STEM activities such as becoming an "engineer-A-Coaster Activity Set"s to explore and solve the problem of being an engineer.

My Students

My children are ages 3-5 . My children are special because the are the best class. I tell them that everyday. They "Fill My Bucket" everyday. We use the Bucket Filling Book for our Positive Behavior Support as well as the Story of the Warm Fuzzies. These children are very compassionate with one another and will help everyone and comfort them in any and all situations. They are very kind and caring with adults and children.

They are eager to learn and to try new activities.

They appreciate everything that I do and will hug you and say thank you with almost all activities. They tell each other the rules as well as the daily routine. They enjoy helping me and each other.

They make me proud each and everyday with what they say and do.

My Project

These materials such as the Engineering a Coaster will let the children learn how a track position will affect objects as they roll down the track. They will read challenge cards and through trial and error will accomplish a variety of tasks,

Early literacy is also essential for our future engineers.

Through the Fairy tail problem solving kits they children will experience more designing of objects m such as a house that cant't be blown down or keeping goats safe from a troll.

These kits will make a difference as they let the children learn and grown at their own developmental level.
