My Students

My students are an incredible bunch of seven and eight year olds. We live in a small, rural farming and ranching community in the heart of central Texas. We are a title one school where all students receive free lunches. While some might think that all of these circumstances put my students at an academic disadvantage, my student's success have proved they are more than projected statistics. They are hard working, determined, and resilient.

My students come to school wanting to learn, explore, and to be challenged.

They crave hands-on experiences and individualized learning. Each day, I see a desire for more exposure to materials beyond textbooks. I am proud to call these students my kids!

My Project

I would like to use K'Nex, wooden blocks, a straw building set, a connects construction set, and building blocks to create five STEM bins in my second grade classroom. STEM bins provide students individual, hands-on activities to use their imagination to explore science and engineering techniques to develop problem solving skills.

Second grade is a pivotal year; it is the year that students begin to identify themselves as successful students or struggling learners.

With STEM bins all students can be successful. They use their own resourcefulness to create, test, and improve building models. Through perseverance, students achieve their own goals and develop life long skills that are the foundation for future math and science learning. STEM bins will allow my students to see themselves as successful learners, a priceless quality every child deserves.
