My Students

My students are an amazing group of learners from disadvantaged backgrounds, and 100% of our students receive free lunch, and a third of the students speak a language other than English at home. The students have limited experiences outside the classroom walls. They have limited exposure to current academic materials and often utilize used and donated supplies. They have limited access to cultural and extra-curricular activities as well. The children are eager learners just waiting for the right tools to help them succeed.

Please help a great group of children soar high to reach their full potential!

My Project

My students have little science experience. Science and math go hand in hand so I have chosen materials that will engage students to learn and be active participants in science and math learning experiences. The block play stem kit will help me allow children to use their curiosity and problem solving skills to build. This is the beginning stages of engineering I want to foster with my little ones.

Our world is a changing place where science knowledge and math are keys to success.

My students are first graders and new to sharing ideas and answering thought provoking questions. As students use the counters and ten frames to solve math problems, I can ask small groups thought provoking questions. The answer boards will help them to learn to think independently then share their answers to my questions! During science lessons students can share ideas and I can see who needs more direction or further explanation. These boards will help me direct instruction for all diverse learners.

Your contribution to my project will help them have the tools to be learners in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math! I look forward to using these materials to introduce beginning math and science concepts.
