STEAM Isn't Complete Without the A and the M

My Students

Mathematics may not teach us to add love or minus hate, but it gives us every reason to hope that every PROBLEM HAS A SOLUTION! Art is the gateway to be as creative as we can but still learn about the solution! We need to fill the "M" and "A" in our STEAM Curriculum.

My students are a breathe of fresh air!

We come from an inner city school full of great minds and attitudes that have learned to adapt to not having all the materials needed to support our curriculum. Our school was just created as a STEAM school. It is one of the first in our area and we were not supported with the materials we need. These donations will help project-inquiry based learning to help my students mind set change just from book learning to hands on learning. It is essential for these children to get the experiences to bring forth into their futures. Mathematics is a big part of our day, and will allow preparation for college learners.

My Project

STEAM a new way of life! Students have opportunity to create a life learning experience of inquiry based learning daily consisting of many experiments of visuals on-line but we need more hands on activities. By the end of the year, we want to be the scientist of the future! Full STEAM away! We need the "A" and “M” for STEAM to complete our art and math section. With the donation of headphones, Learning Wrap-ups - Multiplication, Rock N Learn - Division Rad On DVD and Rock N Learn - Multiplication Rap Cd + Book, my students will be able to work in center based situations and learn through music. Students will love the math fluency facts, wipe off place value charts to support our journey into the Common Core Curriculum and Eureka math. With Markers and Colored pencils my students will be able to bring their to LIFE! These materials will be a big help during my whole group for math as well as my tiered intervention blocks where I am able to pull my students who need support.

With these materials my students will be able to focus on many curriculum based activities in our classroom.

Our focus is on decimals, multiplication, division, and fractions all geared to the Common Core State Standards. Students will have hands on activities in centers daily where we take all of our subjects and incorporate learning into the schedule. My students will walk away in June with a brain full of inquiry and a depth of knowledge using the DOK as well as higher order thinking!
