I am a first grade teacher in a Pre-K through 8th grade school. All of my students come from low income families, with 80% qualifying for free breakfast and lunch. My students are very inquisitive and eager to learn. We are engaged in our learning and are striving to become life-long learners.
My students are thinkers, dreamers, and doers.
They love to put on their “thinking caps” and stretch their brains to become the very best learners they can be. It is my desire to give them the tools they need to achieve their goals and realize their dreams.
I am excited to implement STEM bins into my daily routine! Students will access these activities, working in small groups or individually.
On a daily basis, my students say, "I'm finished!
What do I do now?? The ETA hand2mind STEM Bins by Brooke Brown, are the perfect hands-on solution for early finishers! Rather than provide my students with worksheets and busy wok, I want to give them meaningful work which will grow their minds, providing them with hands-on engaging, and open-ended options. With the STEM Bins, my students will develop a natural drive to play, explore, and engineer whenever possible.
Students will be able to create and recreate many different projects. Each day, the students will have access to many manipulatives and tasks which will spark their curiosity and creativity as well as develop and enhance problem solving skills.
STEM Bins will allow my students to develop learning in multiple areas such as Science, engineering, technology, math, literacy and the arts. Students can create simple or more complex structures depending on their own learning level.
