My Students

I am a first year teacher trying to classroom ready for my first class of 2nd grade students. I need any supplies I can get! I have a lively class of 15 boys and 10 girls. We live in a rural community with more than half of the population living in poverty. Fortunately, my students are all super happy and ready to learn. We still need plenty of supplies to make our classroom complete! Thank you so much for your time and for considering my project.

My Project

These building kits will teach my students how to build through hands on activities. STEM is an important part of our curriculum. Creating machines and learning about engineering are valuable lessons that can inspire children. Also, hands on learning is a crucial part of the learning process and these kits would provide that to my students. My students would learn about building, gears, and machines with these activity kits. They will love creating their machines and growing their engineering minds. Thank you I much for you time and your consideration of my project and your support to education and students.
