My Students

My class is made up of kids who are full of energy and excitement to learn new things. On the first day of school, they cheered when I showed them the library and told them they could pick books to keep at their desk. They love to play music and learn ideas in a variety of ways.

We are a large elementary school that is home to students who represent a wide range of cultures and languages.

They are excited to bring their diverse backgrounds into the classroom where they can collaborate and learn from each other!

My Project

Our classroom library needs interesting books about science and technology! My second graders are always asking for more books about machines, engineering, and math, so that they can learn more about them.

Our project, "Full STEAM Ahead" will give us the materials we need to read, learn, and collaborate about science and math topics.

Having the space and supplies we need will help to strengthen and expand these students' interests in STEAM topics. These engaging books on STEAM topics will be the basis for group discussions and provide a starting place for collaborative experiments. Once students build their background knowledge on these topics, we'll be able to take a deeper dive into these science and math ideas.

Currently we have regular rectangular desks for students to work at. These spaces don't encourage much conversation or group learning. By using the Flex-Space Mobile Group table and floor seats, students will be able to talk and collaborate much more easily. I think these second graders will come up with some great ideas and experiments of their own. I can't wait to see how far these supplies will take them!
