Help me give my students STEM building sets for their Makerspace in order to enhance their collaboration, imagination, and hands-on skills.
I teach math, reading, and science to 25 enthusiastic third graders with a variety of personalities, learning styles, and prior experiences in the classroom. My students have a range of academic abilities which impact their engagement in the classroom. It is my desire to provide my students with a space where they can experiment, make mistakes, and have fun while learning how to problem solve in math and explore in science. I seek to provide extra help to those students who really need it. I also believe that it is important to provide enrichment opportunities to students who grasp concepts more easily and often finish work early. My students work hard and they love hands-on activities.
I want to provide engaging learning opportunities for students, while holding each student accountable for their own learning. My students need a variety of manipulatives and storage for a Makerspace.
Many students have difficulties understanding and applying abstract concepts without tactile materials such as the requested building sets.
It is important for students' learning styles to be fostered and to have support for alternative learning. Research shows there is a growing interest in whether Maker education can help boost student learning outcomes, including test scores (Herold 2016). Also, bringing a Makerspace to the classroom has put a stronger focus on equity and diversity, which is important for the students in the future. Your support would increase interaction and engagement among students. Please help me provide the best learning experiences for my students!
