My students are active, energetic, and LOVE being read to. They enjoy being able to make connections between literature and hands on projects in class. My students come from diverse linguistic, cultural, and economic backgrounds. Approximately 50% of my students qualify for free or reduced cost lunch.
I've always strived to create an active learning environment, and with my current class this has become a greater need than ever.
STEM projects launched our school year, and allowed students to make connections across the curriculum. Although I was able to purchase some items to start the year, the kids need more to keep this great learning going all year long.
Hands on experiences are invaluable for all students, but especially for young students. All of the requested materials will help students to develop their thinking skills, language, and problem solving abilities.
Students will have an opportunity to use materials such as clay and craft sticks to solve science challenges, such as building a secure home for The Three Little Pigs.
While the STEAM interlocking building toys can provide a different material to accomplish the same challenge.
Students will be able to use items such as the origami paper, clay, and pom poms to explore their creative side, and complete art projects based on artists we study, or simply create their own art projects using their imagination.
