My Students

As kindergartners, the classroom provides an arena in which to explore, imagine, and learn. Our students love to learn new things and are excited about opportunities for hands-on interactive learning experiences. My students love to be challenged through intervention stations and centers.

Opportunities, where each child is able to choose fun games or projects that help to assess their knowledge in an interactive manner, keep​ them excited about learning.

I would love the opportunity to nurture these sentiments through the addition of these supplies so that our children have the means and the opportunity to flourish within their educational careers.

My Project

We are so excited to create a Maker Space for our students to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math! The supplies I have requested in the form of gears, arts and crafts supplies, building LEGOs, engineering kits, tanagrams, snap cubes, magnets, and more will allow my students to really explore their creative and critical thinking side and open up an entire new world of exploration and problem solving. This Maker Space will provide our class with the resources needed to design, create and test their inventions.

My students will experience what it is like to be an engineer and create to solve problems, a skill that they can take with them into the world.

I know that this project will open up a whole new world for each of my students!
