Ms. Luna from Bakersfield CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Making STEAM Fun for ALL!

My students need activities that promote creative thinking and building. They love getting out of their seats, sit around the classroom with their peers, and get hands-on. These items will encourage students to imagine and build.

My Students

I love all of my students and have the strong belief that they can all learn. And they can! They all just learn in many different ways-- one way being "hands-on" while collaborating and tutoring one another.

I work with curious and enthusiastic 7 and 8 year olds that appreciate "getting knowledge in their brains".

They understand that learning comes from mistakes and from working with one another. This positive and growth mindset has been cultivated in a classroom environment that celebrates and validates each individual student. The students enjoy group projects in which the teacher takes the role of the facilitator. And this is what I wish to continue providing to my students: the opportunities and freedom to learn from playing, doing, making, and creating.

My Project

This project includes STEAM kits that promote creative thinking, building, and collaborating. It will engage students, help them think, and get them out of their seats. Money and fraction-related manipulatives are also included to expose students to other math skills necessary to succeed. The students will be inspired to "play teacher" through the use of these manipulatives. Peer-tutoring after all is a great way to learn. Additionally, incentives have been included to motivate the students while providing them with educational supplies. Clipboards have been included in order to provide students with a hard surface to write on while they are out of their seats and working with partners or in a group. Wooden cubbies or mailboxes would provide the students with sturdy place in which they could safely store all of their project ideas and work.

Overall, students will be actively learning through having fun-- making room 11 a great place to be!
