My Students

My students are an amazing group of third graders who love to have fun! They have very inquisitive minds and love to learn new things. Our school is in a small suburban community and we love to learn through hands-on activities.

Each year I'm lucky to have such unique and creative kids.

My students come from all different social groups. Some have access to many types of resources outside of school and some do not. I try to incorporate as many resources and teaching strategies I can to give my students what they need to be successful!

My Project

Integrating these STEM kits into my classroom will help my students learn through play! They will foster their creativity and their problem solving skills using the Smarty Pants Builder's Club, the Straws Builder Construction, the wooden building blocks, the IQ builder engineering construction, and the other building block resources. These kits will be used for the student's free time, fast finisher work, as well as rotation resources. My students will be eager to immerse themselves in materials that make a powerful impact!

When students are engaged, students are learning!

By providing them with hands-on practices for implementing concepts and skills taught in the classroom, not only will these third graders be learning valuable material, but they will be doing so in a concrete, practical way!
