STEM Classroom Fun

My students need Snap Circuit kits and Surf Portable Lap Desks

My Students

Our 3rd grade class is a mixture of abilities from ESE to gifted. The varying abilities make it a fun and enthusiastic group to teach, but differentiating to meet their individual needs can be challenging. These students are eager learners who love hands-on STEM activities in the classroom and working together to learn. These students have a great variety of learning styles, but they work together wonderfully.

These children especially enjoy utilizing STEM activities to enhance their learning.

Anything that is hands-on increases their excitement and effort tremendously.

My Project

The Snap Circuits will enable my students to create various mechanical circuits. While following directions, students learn about circuitry and eventually learn to use their own creativity to construct original circuits. The potential is unlimited!

The lap desks will allow students to work all around our classroom and be able to document their work with ease.

It will also provide some freedom to just move around the room when a change is needed. Both of these items will create a more STEM-centered classroom that students will enjoy for years to come.It is so important to foster the love of learning so that children WANT to come to school to learn and have fun.
