Mrs. Carlson from Grand Forks ND is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning Comes Alive

My students need opportunities to learn using a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics approach (STEM). An Ozobot Coding Robot, Snap Circuits, K'NEX explorations and a Makey Makey invention kit lend themselves to problem solving and inquiry.

My Students

Parents and students were given the option to have me as their teacher for two consecutive years. Their overwhelming support and confidence in me as a teacher were rewarding and validated my decision to return to the classroom after working as an administrator for numerous years. I am excited to be their teacher for another year and see them continue to grow and learn.

My students' love of learning, excitement, enthusiasm, and willingness to work collaboratively is what makes them remarkable!

They are self directed learners and take pride in their accomplishments. Their perseverance is commendable and teamwork in solving problems is exciting to see in action.

My Project

I want my students to have experiences that are hands-on and include opportunities to work together, problem solve, think critically, and ultimately result in a joy of learning.

The items I have selected for purchase include small robots, invention and discovery kits, and fundamentals of circuitry.

Students will work in small groups and have multiple opportunities to interact with each of the items requested. These STEM experiences will elicit conversations, engagement, and provide them with the background knowledge that can be transferred across the curriculum. Photos will be taken and posted on our classroom Twitter and SeeSaw accounts to share with their families and others.
