Mrs. Lauro from Woodhaven NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

STEAM Ahead!

Help me give my students the opportunity to become engineers by donating to our STEM project because at the age of 3 and 4 my students learn best by creating, building, exploring and using problem-solving skills.

My Students

I teach a class of 15 3k students. These children are the youngest in a DOE school and are in school for the first time in their life. Our school is a prank new school for early childhood education. Our students have limited materials at this time. My students are very eager to learn and love to explore in all of our centers.

The students in this class are fun-loving children and enjoy playing with their friends while we learn through play and exploration.

Many activities the children love are playing with blocks, exploring in science and using their imagination in dramatic play. We incorporate music and dance and motion in everything we do.

My class is very diverse in all aspects and is very excited to meet try new things and learn new concepts in engaging ways.

My Project

As an early childhood teacher, you see many children struggle with problem-solving. I want my students to try new and different things. Children will give up if they feel there is something they can't do. These STEM kits are the best way for the children to start learning this important skill.

STEM kits give the children the materials needed to meet a challenge and how to achieve a goal.

Children will learn through play by trial and error and problem-solving.

Some of our units of study include simple machines and transportation. I plan to incorporate these kits into our units to encourage STEM in my classroom. The children will learn how to build a car and make a simple machine.
