My Project

This year our students are being differentiated into different classes three times a week during the school day to be challenged to explore their passions and curiosities. Through STEAM, the first grade students will have opportunities to deepen their understandings of math, reading, writing etc. through hands on activities and projects. These projects will need materials and kits to support the students in the explorations and help them create pieces that explain their learning. The materials requested will be used to make books, math stories, engineering structures and other visual representations of students' knowledge.
