My Students

Hello. Thank you for previewing my project. I currently live and teach grades K-2 in a remote area of Alaska. Travel to this location is by small plane only, mail is slow to arrive and shopping is limited to one tiny store.

My students are little sponges who have developed a strong love for reading and theater.

This year we introduced weekly book talks / literacy circles and monthly readers theater. After school we are working on our first theater production of their favorite story: The Pout Pout Fish. Many of my students were not readers and did not have a love of books before this year. It has been a wonderful transformation to witness.

My class has 4 kindergarten, 3 first grade and 6 second grade students. They love hunting, fishing and berry picking... all of which are subsistence activities they participate in with their families to help provide food for the family table. Travel is restricted by boat on the Yukon River, snow machine during the winter and bush plane service to other villages and into the bigger cities.

My Project

These materials will provide my students with hands-on, STEM based problem solving activities. They are self-contained kits, with no need to buy other materials to be able to implement them, which is very important when you live in a remote area.

I am really excited about these materials because they pose engineering problem solving activities based on popular fairy tales which will engage BOTH boys and girls.

I love how literature has been woven through STEM ... the best of both worlds!

I've included puppets from the same stories to encourage oral story telling and story comprehension/retelling. If this project is funded we will be building a puppet theater to allow students the opportunity to both watch and perform puppet shows. This will enhance our performance based literacy instruction.

These materials will help students develop skills in critical thinking, problem solving, team work, communication, oral speaking fluency, oral story telling, reading comprehension, sequencing and more.
