My Students

My STEAM students are full of curiosity! Their inquisitive minds are always ready for a fun and exciting challenge to explore. Whether it's a science activity about Matter or an engineering project about force, they absolutely love finding opportunities to use and exercise their 21st century skills.

These future little leaders own their learning by collaborating, communicating, and making use of their critical thinking skills, not to mention, their creativity!

There is never a dull moment, as we explore projects through science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

My Project

Having these materials in the classroom will make it easier for my students to move around freely. Most of our days are spent doing group work or collaborative learning, therefore a flexible learning space is key. If their materials are easily accessible and mobile, then they will be less hesitant to take the initiative to migrate into groups. During lessons and activities, my students tend to move their chairs around the room, so that they can work in a comfortable space with their peers. The noise from the chairs moving around can sometimes cause unnecessary distractions. The chair socks would really limit the noise, so that we can stay focused on our tasks, not to mention our 'neighbors' downstairs would probably appreciate it as well! The badge holders and lanyards will allow us to "wear" our assigned jobs when doing group work. They will help us stay organized while we move around as well. These donations would really help us out, as we work on building our 21st century skills and keep mobing full STEAM ahead!
