Pre K Uses STEAM Skills

My students need hands on materials, such as Jumbo Magnetic Building Tiles, to practice and apply what they are learning. This would be a wonderful opportunity for them to apply their acquired math, construction, science, and social skills.

My Students

Hello, most of our students come from a low economic disadvantaged area. Our area consists of a mixture of cultures and languages. The most predominant are English and Spanish. We need your help, please.

We are teaching kids the basis of STEAM and they need multiple scenarios where they can demonstrate the skills they learn as the school year passes.

We teach those skills using a variety of resources where 4 and 5 year old find entertaining and challenging. It is so wonderful to see how they blossom as they understand better how they can apply their learned skills.

My Project

This Jumbo Magnetic Tiles would be a great tool for students to relate their newly acquired knowledge of science, construction, math, engineer, communication and social skills. As the school year goes thru, they will realized how much more they are able to do.

Our students feel very proud when they realize how can they apply what they have learned to create something.

We are on track on teaching our future world leaders, and they need to have every significant experience possible. Starting STEAM activities early on in their school life, will help them get ready in their continue education. We will love to have this opportunity to provide this activity to our students.
