Ms. Albin from Dover FL is requesting professional development through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Professional development

Learning More for My Learners!

I need a variety of resources for my students’ needs, including books on STEM/STEAM, Science, Math, Reading, and Positive Behavior Strategies.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom will consist of anywhere between 40-50 3rd graders, separated into two different classes. The students come from a variety of backgrounds and socioeconomic status. Some parents are able to be involved in school and activities, but most work day jobs, some even two or three. As a departmentalized teacher, I am looking for resources to further my own learning to benefit these students in the areas of math and science. I am excited to dive into a new content area as I have yet to focus only on math and sciences in my career. I need help to better understand and decompose the state and common core standards associated with this grade level and and content areas that I will be facilitating my students to master. I’m looking forward to implementing the STEAM-based activities into the classroom and making science and math more engaging in the classroom!

My Project

This year I have decided to take on a new grade level and a new specific content area. I will not only be a departmentalized teacher of math and science, but also I will be the STEAM Club Sponsor at my school. I feel that I am lacking in the knowledge to do this to the best of my ability and would like to acquire more information on these content areas. These professional development resources will provide teaching opportunities for myself and my new students. The STEAM resources include experiments and projects that we complete during club meetings and the positive behavior materials will give me new and engaging strategies for students to take control of their learning and behaviors. For example, I will be able to learn the basics of STEM/STEAM and how to be design lessons that incorporate these elements. My students will directly benefit from these lessons in the classroom through Science Labs, Notebook Reflections, and group discussions. For math, the workbooks will help me to better break down the standards so I can teach my learners and meet their needs both individually and as a whole group. I also want to help them tackle the rigor of FSA and state testing. With this resources we can maneuver our way through these challenges.
