Let's STEMulate Discovery and Learning
My students need hands-on engagement through various activities to provide positive educational outcomes in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
I teach students with autism and multiple disabilities from 1st to 8th grade. I work with over 120 students on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Students are learning more than ever before by thinking, noticing, wondering, picturing and figuring out with hands-on engagement/activities.
My students have autism and multiple disabilities, but we want to concentrate on all the amazing things they can do!
I want to create a classroom where learning has no limit!
My goal is to inspire a love for all the areas of STEM and show them the amazing wonders this world has to offer. All of my students are eager learners who are like little sponges; ready to absorb anything you give them. They love hands-on lessons! Whether it is a game, computer game, activity on the smart board, iPad, ebooks, playing with manipulatives or just sharing a book, they love to learn new things in a variety of different ways.
I currently have, in my classroom programs that correlate with reading and math for the students. The children learn best through hands-on engagement and experiences. Due to this, I want to give them all the materials they need to succeed in school and in life.
In our classroom, we have been developing a new appreciation for all things STEM. I have requested materials, which will bring the learning of my students to another dimension. Instead of just reading about minerals and rocks, they will have the opportunity to bring learning to their fingertips. This will happen through being engaged in the content being presented before them with the classroom. Content will go from just being in their imaginations and on a classroom board into their hands which will encourage more thought and the development of other skills needed to make STEM a part of their everyday lives. I requested items such as Science Daily Warm Ups, IWB SCIENCE SET/50 CHARTS, Engineering through the year 120 turnkey STEM projects, hands-on engineering and E-Z garden kit. These materials are essential for my students with disabilities to learn STEM like their non-disabled peers. Our students must meet all the Common Core Learning Standards by their grade level.
My students need your help!
I want my class excited to learn STEM. The best way to learn is hands-on. We would be able to take the concepts and experiments we find online and in books and bring them to life. My students need an opportunity to think about their thinking by engaging in lessons that integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. They will predict, build, problem solve, and use technology to document experiences; now that sounds like a lot of learning to me!
