I work in a Title I school where more than 80% of the students are economically disadvantaged. All of my students are English Language Learners. They are ready to learn a new language full of energy, curiosity, and questions.
In the mornings' students enter my room with smiles and are excited to learn something new.
They love to use their imagination to create pictures, build structures, and tell stories. As they learn new things, I can see the sparkle in their eyes as they build, create, and learn how to read and write.
STEM is something that schools have been exploring recently. In my classroom, I haven't been able to set up a STEM center because of a lack of Science materials. My students love going to the school's STEM lab, but only get to do it once a week. I would like to set up a STEM center in my classroom so that students have more time exploring science, technology, engineering and math skills.
All the science sets I have ordered like the crystal growing kit, life cycle kit, telescopes, and plant labs will be used to open up the Science part of our STEM center.
My students will be able to use them every other day as they rotate through all the centers in our classroom.
Exploring these Science kits will help them learn our Science objectives in a fun way and will also prepare them for our Science Fair which is a few months away!
