My Students

"Learning is not the product of teaching. Learning is the product of the activity of learners."

-John Holt

At this time, our world has changed drastically. Our classrooms have emptied and my student's learning has switched to online. While these changes have happened suddenly, my student's desire for learning has not altered.

Every day my students are logging into online platforms to learn from videos, slides, demonstrations, and stories that I organize to best prepare them for 2nd grade. This accumulates the majority of learning comes from being in front of the screen.

My desire is to give my students an opportunity for hands-on learning that is not only fun, but builds their fine-motor skills, enhances focus and creativity, and is something they can use for a break from being online.

My Project

My students are used to working with many manipulatives found in our classroom. We had an assortment of tools available for learning all subjects and building all age-appropriate skills. But now, with Distance Learning happening, my students don't have the opportunity to use them. I'm hoping to give my students at least one set of tools to use at home!

These Engineering and Design learning STEM kits will help give my students a break from Online Learning, while still enhancing their creativity, stimulating their minds, and building upon their individual stage of cognitive development.

I have ordered a set for each student and I'm very excited to drop them off at their homes (following social distancing recommendations of course)! After careful consideration, I picked these to be the perfect supplement to their education because I know that every individual student will enjoy them!
