My Students

My students are bilingual, Spanish/English learners. They bring to the classroom many skills and knowledge about the world. Every day we practice extending this knowledge to create meaning about new things.

This group of students is particularly interested in exploring content through play.

We use puppets, songs, games and drama to enhance the learning process. There is also a time during their academic school day designated for free exploration of activities throughout the classroom. It is during this time when students build, pretend, invent, experiment and co-operate with others.

My Project

These exciting STEM materials will bring learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to life through exploration and play. Students will spend time making roller coasters, experimenting with magnets, buiding houses and cars. These materials will be used in small groups inspiring collaboration between students and cooperation while playing-out real world situations.

While using these STEM materials, kindergarten students will learn about perserverance through trial and error experimentation, while gaining a fuller perspective of the creative process.

Because five and six year-olds are scientists by nature, these materials will only enhance their curiosity. The possibilities are endless and these students can not wait to engage their imagination.
