My Students

My students are brilliant, funny, and show that a group of students from various backgrounds can work together! The students in my classroom come from a variety of socioeconomic, racial, and family backgrounds that is unique to our part of Oklahoma! With that, students are at a multitude of different learning levels which can cause the method or learning environment to differ for each student!

My students are like a deck of cards; each student that enters my classroom has their own problems that causes learning to be difficult.

Adding to that deck are outside influences that cause education to not be valued quite as high as other things. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies such as collaborative learning communities, projects, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met.

The ultimate goal in my classroom is to create a learning environment that comforting and welcoming for each and every student! At the end of the day, my students are what keep me going and are the very reason I entered education!

My Project

The days of being an elementary school student, walking into class in the morning, completing a worksheet silently, and pulling out a book to read when you're done are over. What if we were to rethink our mornings? What if mornings were a time where students were excited to come into class? What if students were doing activities that involved collaboration, strategy, creativity, rigor, problem-solving, critical thinking, or addressing various learning styles? The Morning STEM Choice Project, will do just that!

Morning STEM Choice will allow students to walk into the classroom, grab a STEM item and start creating!

Students get to start off their day doing a creative activity that gets the excitement and engagement started and will extend throughout the rest of the day. During this time, students are practicing 21st Century Skills without even realizing it! The lessons that will be taught will extend beyond the classroom, the students are learning to create items, communicate their design, and collaborate with others to solve problems.

The items included in the Morning STEM Choice Project include; VIAHART Brain Flakes, GARUNK Building Bricks, idoot Magnetic Tiles, and Magnetic Building Sticks, along with a rolling cart for easy storage and access! By using these items, the students can create and design different items that represent their wildest dreams.
