I am excited to start my second year of teaching! My students are creative, thoughtful and ask many questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects that challenge them! What is special about our school, is that it is located in a small town with poverty knocking at their doors.
The poverty doesn't slow these eager students down!
They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. The students WANT to be here!
I want my students to know it doesn't matter their financial struggles, their learning experience will be rich! What better way to challenge them, then with the most up to date technology and most creative ways to learn.
We are requesting STEAM challenge kits so they can float, race and structure their ideas for the best STEAM night ever! At the First Ever STEAM Night, we will set up stations and let kids come through and try each activity! The idea is to have enough projects so that each child can experience each station.
For the Science station we will have two different areas and we will be using the Balloon Race Cars Kit, and the Boats and Buoyancy Kit.
For the Technology station we are using our school resources to learn through Osmo. For the Engineering station we will be using the Structures Kit. For the Art station we will use the Cyanotype Art and Science Kit so students can learn about original photographic processes from the 19th century, as well as another station that our Art Teacher will use. For the Math stations we will have 3 different stations using fractions, telling time and how to count money from our school school Math resources.
