My Students

Third grade is a year of amazing growth for students. Students work diligently on learning their multiplication facts, writing detailed stories, and working on reading skills. All of this could not be possible without the support of community members and parents.

My class of 23 students is filled with many different personalities and backgrounds.

I have students of different cultures, as well as different beliefs. Our school is made up of 360 students (25% of whom receive free or reduced-price lunch) who try to embody our three major school rules of being respectful, responsible, and safe. Every day teachers encourage students to dream, believe, think, and achieve.

My Project

The materials that I am requesting for my third grade students will be geared towards science discovery learning. The STEM bins will have materials that will inspire the students to construct something using task cards. STEM bins are plastic clear boxes filled with an engineering manipulative, such as connecting disks, pipe cleaners and popsicle sticks with velcro on the ends. The boxes also contain small sets of task cards on metal rings that picture a variety of basic engineering structures. These STEM bins will then be placed on an easily accessible shelf in the classroom. When students’ regular classwork is complete, they can take one STEM bin at a time and get a quiet moment to engineer. They use the materials in the box to construct as many different structures on the cards as they can. And instead of being just “busy,” students are engaged in creative, complex tasks and are encouraged to think like inventors. Kinesthetic learners, spatial learners, and logical learners will love exploring the different possibilities for the building materials as they try to construct more challenging structures. These will be made by the teacher.

By incorporating STEM bins into my classroom, it will provide my students the chance to explore the world of Science in an exploratory way.

This will also provide engaging activities for students that finish tests and other activities early.

Science is such an important part of the classroom today. I want my students to be allowed to focus on this area more than just the regular lessons.
