My Students

Many of my students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds and face many challenges inside and outside of the classroom. Though my students come from a low income school district, they are always coming to school with smiles on their face. They are eager to learn new and exciting things. At times, it can be a challenge to motivate struggling learners. Therefore, I love making learning exciting and meaningful by using creative instruction and effective learning tools. Many of my students are hands-on and visual learners. I hope the passion I exhibit will inspire my students to work towards academic success.

My Project

The fairy tale STEM kits will allow my students to make connections while exploring real life problem solving strategies. Students will read a complex version of each fairy tale during reading class before completing each kit. The kits include a dilemma card,building blocks and figurines for students to plan, design, and create solutions to each dilemma.

Students will use the gadgets and inventions kit to create new inventions, as well as, re-create the famous inventions of Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Graham Bell, and Thomas Edison.

My class will complete a research unit about intentions and inventors during reading and science class. These STEM materials will help students understand inventions across the curriculum.The building bricks challenge kit allows students to choose a challenge card, use the snap-together building pieces to engineer a solution, and then test their creation, revising and retesting until their design is successful. This kit will help student build their own inventions.
