My Students

My classroom is made up of 25 eager, energetic, hard-working, and awesome first graders.

I have an inclusion class where there are a variety of needs, learning styles, and developmental levels of the students.

They come from many different backgrounds, where many of them have had difficult obstacles to overcome already at an early age in their life. Several of them really lack the confidence needed to work toward their full potential. Many of them find it incredibly challenging to focus and pay attention throughout the entire school day. Our school is a Title I school and has a large low-socioeconomic population, which means there is a large percentage of students receiving free and reduced lunch. Some of them do not always come to school with the things they need to help them be successful.

My Project

I would love to use morning exploration STEM tubs in my classroom this year! First grade is a year of huge growth academically! Students are learning how to read, write, add and subtract. Students are building their academic skills but also working through their social and emotional skills.

I would like to incorporate morning exploration STEM tubs into my classroom in order to allow students have some time to talk and build social relationships with their peers all while encouraging them to use and expand their skills related to science, technology, engineering and math.

Throughout the year I will rotate morning tubs to include the requested items including brain flakes, magna tiles, magnetic building blocks, wooden building blocks and discs, and engineering kits. This will allow students to use a variety of materials and encourage creative thinking with their peers.
