My Students

When thinking about my students I can only come up with 1 word that describes them: enthusiastic. They want to learn about EVERYTHING. They are not only open to new learning but they want to show that they know! Everything is a wonder to them and they are EXCITED to learn how to do it all!

I have a total of 22 eager Kindergartners who come every day ready to learn.

My class consists of various economic and ethnic backgrounds. I have special educations students, ELL students, and learners of a variety of academic levels. They come every day with a smile and ready to show the world what they are capable of achieving!

My Project

The materials I have selected will give my students the opportunity to learn to create , work together and be engaged in their learning. These STEM materials create the need to think outside the box . To work together to create something bigger than them. To learn problem solving skills and learn the importance of communication to achieve their goal. I want to give my student tools that will help them grow their scientific minds and learn there is more than one way to achieve their goals .

The Magna-tile Master set will create opportunities where my students can collaborate with one another, plan , and more importantly create!

They can be used in a math setting -geometry- as well as during our STEM portion of our day. These building blocks are magnetic and can be used along with with write and wipe blue prints mats. Students can plan and design their 3D buildings and actually see them come to life!

The same can be said about the Young Architect Design and the STEM building block - All three sets are meant to be used along with the Blue print mats for endless opportunities of active and meaningful learning. These tools will empower their learning and create a growth mindset in my classroom !
