Hooray! This project is fully funded
I have 24 wonderfully curious Kindergartners in my class. We are a Title I, high poverty school in Glenpool, OK. We have recently been moved up to a class 5A school because our high enrollment.
My students come from very diverse backgrounds.
Our community is a melting pot of different cultures, languages, and families adding to the excitement of our classroom.
My students are 5 and 6 years old and eager to explore and learn. I am amazed by the learning that takes place in our classroom every day.
I am requesting manipulative libraries for STEM exploration in our classroom. Each set has different types of building blocks allowing students to twist, turn, snap, and slide to create fun structures from gear construction to robots and other imaginary creatures. I want the students to have a fun and hands-on activity for the end of the day.
Children can build eye/hand coordination as they link, push and snap the pieces together and then advance to constructing complex objects and designs.
These sets will be used every day at the end of the day. Students will be free to choose a manipulative filled bin and explore different ways to build objects and structures. I feel that STEM is a very important part of kindergarten and should be looked at as something fun and engaging for students.
