My Students

We are a school district made up of three smaller, rural cities. Our district is growing this year which means more need for support of the growing student base. There is a mixture of low income and ELL students which means a need for external support.

Our district has great programs in the secondary buildings including great personal-exploration but the district needs to have more exploration for the elementary levels.

The two smaller elementary schools house one section in each grade K-5 and don't have the opportunities for exploration that our large elementary school does due to the size difference. We would like to have more opportunities for the smaller building through makerspaces.

My Project

These materials will help my kindergarten students and other students in the building create items in the makerspace. These items will represent the learning taking place at school. They bring these projects home to parents and explain what they learned.

The goal of this is to give opportunities for the 100 kindergarten students I teach in STEAM class to create various projects to share what they learned in class at home with their parents.

These projects will include a puppet, harmonica, a car the moves, and a working robot. As you can see these simple materials add up quickly when you need enough for 100 students.

Please help me bring makerspace learning projects to my STEAM class giving students opportunities to share their learning of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics in our classroom.
