My Students

I teach 4th grade at a Title I school in Greece, N.Y. My students come from very diverse and culture rich backgrounds. My students show up each day with a smile on their face ready to learn. I would like to provide them with a classroom stocked with the necessities for success. I also want to supply my students with STEM activities that will keep them motivated to learn while having fun at the same time.

STEM materials will help spark a love of building, and thinking outside the box!

My Project

STEM activities will allow students to think outside the box, and work in a setting where creativity is the key. Students will collaborate with their peers in order to foster learning and creativity.

These activities allow students to feel free to create and work hand-on with a variety of magnets, blocks and other materials such as the magnetic blocks, brain teasers and pattern blocks to build and create with endless possibilities.

STEM allows all students to use their imagination, creativity and just have fun! Students love to take a break from the rigors of high stakes education and play. This project will allow they to do just that while in a fun and learning environment.
