My Students

I have 20 wonderful first graders in my class! We love to learn each day! My students are eager to learn and create!

All 20 of my students are different and special.

They have various learning styles, interests, and cultural backgrounds.

We work hard every day to to become better readers, writers, creators, and mathematicians!

We follow a school code of being respectful, responsible, safe, and helping others belong. My hope is to instill the goal of lifelong learning for each of my students.

My Project

I always want to allow my students to be creative and drive their passions. Giving my students different STEM bins/kits, will allow them to be creative. The bins/kits would be used for various lessons. Each one of my students has different interests. These different bins will give students options on what they want to be creative with. The STEM products are a way for learning to be engaging and exciting! The products that I want for the project are building blocks, Legos, and Leogs simple machines. This will give students time to be creative.

My students would be so grateful to receive something to be creative with!

This project would give my students the opportunity to engage in educational materials that they normally would not be able to.
