My Students

We, the players of Ms. K's class, will work hard to be the best team. We will complete our work, meet our AR goals, and have a lot of fun. - Student created mission statement.

My 18 new first grade students are full of energy and love learning new things every day.

Most of them come from a low income home where school is a safe place to spend their days. Each student is given a free breakfast every morning as well as free lunch.

My Project

My students will use these materials in the area of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).

These materials will especially help in the areas of engineering and team building.

They will use their engineering skills to build and transform these materials into something completely different. They will use their math skills to identify 2D and 3D shapes.

Using the magnet toys and building sticks will also help them develop their abilities to think outside the box (art) as they will be able to create and build through the use of free-play.

The students will also use problem solving skills to solve marble mazes.

These skills are important for my students to develop and perfect to be successful in their everyday life.
