My Students

I teach two sections of Math/Science for third grade in a rural area of Wisconsin. Each classroom has 21 students. The two sections are very different from each other. Both classes love to learn with hands on materials and look forward to doing STEM activities when given an opportunity.

My students love to learn in a variety of ways.

The students don't get always to get learn through "play." My two classes are very eager students who love to learn every day. They enjoy Fridays when a good portion is spent on Science since we don't always get to it during the week. With these bins, students will be able to get more science time by applying their learning by creating different tasks.

My Project

I am requesting different hands on materials for the students to use when they finish early, indoor recess, or for our Science Fridays. The bins will allow multiple students to explore STEM with different materials. Students can use a task card to complete a project or they can use their imagination to create a project with given restrictions.

Students will love experiencing the hands on activities through the different bins.

Students who struggle with a core subject will be able to show their hands on learning through completing different tasks. The bins will allow students to pick the material they would like to use to create a STEM project. Each bin will have different materials. Students will be able to create different tasks by using magnet blocks, legos, blocks, cups, or foam balls. I will be able to demonstrate certain STEM ideas using the classroom bundle.
