Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach full day kindergarten at a high poverty school in a suburb of Denver, Colorado. We are considered a Title I school. The class is a highly diverse community with over half that speak a second language at home. I have a wide range of learners and we differentiate according to individual needs. My class consists mostly of boys. My students look forward to learning in engaging and meaningful ways.
These kids are always ready to learn.
They are kind and thoughtful while some are still learning social skills. With the constant structure and routine at school, it provides them with a safe environment and routine they thrive for. The students excel in their work and are ready to learn and be kind the moment they walk in the classroom.
My students come in with some fine motor deficits due to technology. I would like to see their fine motor skills strengthen with the nuts and bolts and the totter tower.
All of the students are great problem solvers and innovators.
Their creativity is phenomenal. The STEM resources and building would be great to see their 21st century skills develop. The communication with each other and their way of designing will show with what they can create with the marble run and the Q-Ba-maze. I would love to see them work together, communicate, problem solve and develop some successful structures.
