My Students

Our little school had me on the last day of my first school year teaching there. I was told quickly to grab my American flag from the classroom and to run outside to the curb. Years have passed and I'm still running to the curb along with our students, parents, and staff to celebrate, not only the beginning of summer but the connection we hold together.

The students hold this connection throughout the school year.

My students come into kindergarten inquisitive, excited, nervous and maybe a little shy. However, they are ready to learn, although most of them do not realize how much they'll learn in just 180 days.

My Project

What is STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math)and why is it so important to our students? STEM pervades every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us, technology is expanding, engineering is the basic design around us, and mathematics is in every future job.

This project is getting students interested in STEM and thinking divergently, inventively, and imaginatively.

All the materials requested in this project are to support students recreating structures (such as a house or a tower) and objects (such as slide or a boat). The building materials that the students will use are pipe cleaners, playdoh, legos, styrofoam balls, dixie cups and more. These materials will help them construct 2D & 3D shapes, solving problems, building a creative design while improving their fine motor skills. These materials will be stored in easily accessible containers that is apart of this project. And how to make kinders begin this journey? A few popular STEM storybooks to inspire them.
