My Students

I teach a wonderful group of Kindergarten children. They are excited about learning, constantly on the move, and curious about our world. They love learning and I want to expand their thinking!

I am always looking for ways to increase their knowledge, challenge their thinking and visualization skills, and create a solid base for future learning.

Many of my students don't have opportunities outside of school for new experiences. I hope to find various ways for them to learn, explore, question, and seek using different methods to answer these questions. My students love anything we can fully explore or create!

My Project

Kindergarten children are natural explorers! With the hands-on activities and materials in this requested STEM Bundle kit, they will be able to visualize, build, test, and revise their creations. The STEM activities help develop abstract thinking skills.

My students will benefit from the tools and materials in this bundle.

The kits include objects that float, fly, and need to be built to create a chain reaction. Fairy Tales are included to help children work on problem-solving. The STEM bundle we have requested will help children answer questions and complete each STEM challenge; and, in doing so, they'll build critical language and literacy skills, boost creative expression, and master early engineering concepts.

Science, technology, engineering, and math are key areas for building knowledge and shaping the future of young kids. Help my kids develop these necessary skills with these STEM sets. They need to develop their critical thinking skills with the use of building materials and cause and effect tools. Collaboration and the ability to experiment will build a strong foundation for learning.
