My Students

I work at a wonderful school with a great group of students. Many of the students in my class come from different backgrounds and may have other learning difficulties but that doesn't stop them from coming to school with a positive attitude and a "can do" mindset.

While we are lucky to be in a school that has some of the resources we need, there are still a few things we would love to have to make our learning environment even better!

We are constantly creating projects, working in groups and doing our best to grow our brains! Giving students options for how they choose to work empowers them and allows them ownership over their learning!

My Project

We are always looking for ways to grow and stretch our minds. Researchers say that in the next few years, job opportunities in the STEM field (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) will be in high demand. These STEM bins come with all the necessary materials, challenge cards and writing prompts to help apply the knowledge we are gaining from science, technology, engineering and math.

These bins are a creative and developmentally appropriate form of engineering for elementary students.

Not to mention, they're fun! These activities require collaboration, teamwork and direction following! With 12 bins, we can constantly rotate the bins and add new challenge cards for exciting new activities. Help us to grow our minds through integrated, cross-curricular activities.
