STEAM Activities for Young Scholars

Help me give my students STEAM activities for their free choice learning centers!

My Students

Hello, everyone! I teach the most wonderful grade of all, Pre-K 3! My class is made up of the smartest little people I know! They love being read to and going to centers where they can use manipulatives to enrich their learning. They come to school eager to learn every day! Pre-K 3 is the first experience most (if not all) of my students have with education, and for many of them, it is the only educational experience they have throughout the day.

They all have different abilities, but my goal is to prepare them socially and academically for Pre-K 4 and beyond.

I believe that all children can learn if they have the support and encouragement to develop a love for learning, especially at an early age. Your support in helping provide educational experiences for my students is very much appreciated!

My Project

All of these materials would go towards our free-choice learning centers. We've asked for paint so that we can further develop our artistic and fine motor skills, bug catching kits for our insect theme, and a scientist play set to develop our knowledge of the scientific process.

I teach the youngest students at our school and having these learning centers would provide my students with new experiences that would help develop their social, academic, and fine motor skills.

Thanks to your generous donations, our students will get to have hands-on learning experiences that they otherwise would not get to have.
