My Students

I have 20 fourth grade students who come to school excited and eager to learn! Our school is one of the STEM elementary schools in our district, with a focus on engineering. Our school has over 400 students from various socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of the students in my classroom have faced a lot of challenges throughout their lives. It is a goal of mine to try to make their time at school and in my classroom a safe and rewarding environment.

My Project

We need a STEM rug for our classroom Learning Center. Our classroom has a cold, tile floor. The floor would be more comfortable and inviting with an area rug. My students spend a lot of time creating, collaborating and building on the floor! This space is used often in our classroom.

Now imagine, having a warm inviting place to get on the floor, stretch out to collaborate, think critically, and create!

With this large STEM rug, students will be able to stretch out, create large projects, and not be restricted to a desk and chair. This rug will also be used as a place to gather for meetings and instruction. This is another great way to remind my 4th grade students the importance of STEM and support our school's vision.
