The students in my school come from the city with the highest poverty rate in the state. They face many challenges from substance abuse in the home, trauma, to food insecurities. As their teacher, I strive to provide the most engaging learning in the classroom possible.
The more engaged and motivated students are, the more they will fully participate, learn, and make a way for themselves in the future.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) lessons are an excellent avenue for gaining student engagement. This project will aid me in bringing STEAM into the classroom.
I have chosen the Fairy Tales STEAM Kit from Lakeshore Learning as my donors choose project.
Students learn best when they are having fun in meaningful, engaging activities that are integrated in the curriculum.
The activities in this kit are connected to my classroom's fairy tale curriculum which students love.
These materials will be highly motivating for students to engage in hands on, integrated activities! Fairy Tales STEAM Kit combines classic stories with hands-on STEM and literacy activities. Students will build critical language and literacy skills, boost creative expression, master early engineering concepts and much more! This kit integrates multiple subject areas—including STEM, literacy, creative expression and social-emotional development.
