My Students

My students are eager to learn, but we are all in uncharted territory due to the virus! They love to stay busy and need to have as much interaction as possible while still being safe.

My second graders are full of questions, and I am excited about allowing my students to answer their own questions through inquiry based learning.

I have students from a wide range of social, economic, and ethnic backgrounds. They come to school every day ready to learn and to work hard! Our school motto is "We are Learning to Live and Living to Learn," and my students are walking proof of that.

My Project

I want my students to have the ability to get creative and build using hands on STEAM materials. My students love to build and create- even in the current virtual learning environment we build in STEAM time in order for students to build and show their creativity.

In order for my students to be able to have meaningful hands on building activities- I have to create individual kits that are made up of materials that I can sanitize.

Please help me get the materials to put these kits together, so the building doesn't have to stop when we come back to school!
