My Students

Our primary students are energetic learners who have a thirst for learning. Living in an urban neighborhood on the far south side of Chicago our students have shown that they can face any challenges that come their way! As teachers, we want to also show them that with learning can also come fun!

The experiences most of our students receive outside the classroom are limited or none at all.

They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Luckily, from the minute they walk into our school we focus on their future and make sure we meet all their needs. All the teachers try their best to be creative and positive hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic achievement.

My Project

During the first week of school I set the stage to incorporate STEM within my classroom. The students love Saving Fred from the depths of the ocean. I provide STEM Fridays in my class to give them a more focused STEM activity to build teamwork amongst their classmates that also is paired with a read aloud.

By integrating STEM I can guide my students to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for challenges and real-world problems while applying the rigor of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics content.

I began to use STEM bins in my room last year for early finishers. I would like to revamp them with newer materials that will continue to give them a thirst to create, build, and use their imaginations! By giving them a variety of manipulatives from blocks, to LEGOs, to K’nex the learning is endless!
