My Students

I teach in a diverse area, and my hard-working students come to school every day ready to learn. I love my students! They are hard-working, eager learners. They come from diverse backgrounds including various ethnicities and diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. I use whole-brain teaching strategies in my classroom, so my students are constantly engaged in learning and sharing ideas with each other. I want my students to have all of the essentials they need to be able to love life every day.

My Project

STEAM Bins are ideal hands-on creative and developmentally appropriate form of engineering for elementary students. I have chosen these materials because I think that they will be best for my learning environment. Each bin is going to have a different object in it. LEGOs, magnetic tiles, Play-Doh and toothpicks, base ten blocks and unifix cubes are the different objects students will have access to. Students will be asked to create a task with that object. For example, a bridge out of base ten blocks or a house out of unifix cubes. There will be many different task cards for each bin. I am also going to provide recording sheets for students to draw and write about their creations.
