My Students

I am working with a group of bright-eyed, eager first graders. I have 25 students who love to explore the world around them.

Every morning, I am able to greet my first graders and help them learn using centers, investigation, and teamwork.

Some of them grab a book to read, others will work on the computer or practice their sight words with a buddy. They love to have a little free time in the morning to choose an activity they enjoy.

I work in an elementary school in Brooklyn and my students receive free breakfast and lunch. Unfortunately, many of the students start the year off without the proper supplies and are not exposed to basic simple activities to help them learn their letters and numbers. But they love working in their groups and exploring the materials around them.

My Project

Every Friday we have STEAM Club. We are a group of first and second grades who will meet and explore different STEAM topics.

Our students work hard every week, so what better way to spend your Friday afternoon, problem-solving, being creative, and having fun while exploring and learning through different hands-on activities.

Students will work together to Create-A- Chain reaction and explain how it works to their classmates. They will also use their engineering skills to help them survive an earthquake. Students will also be able to build a remote control gear robot. Students learning through exploring! Help me bring the materials to our room so they can have some fun with their learning.
