As my students walk into the classroom, they are ready and eager to learn. Every day, they share how much they enjoy coming to school. I want them to feel safe and know they can accomplish anything if they apply themselves. I teach at a school where it's income based and many of the children receive backpack food for the weekend.
My students come from different cultural backgrounds, and I try to meet each student’s needs.
Regardless of their backgrounds, my students are excited to learn. They want to do their best in school and achieve their goals in life.
My STEM for Early Learners will also be able to design stronger blocks and buildings for the future by experimenting with the Survive the Quake Engineering Kit. Not only do I have engineers in my classroom, but I also have scientists. Our scientists will be able to get a hands-on understanding of objects in motion—as they race carts down ramps, launch “bugs” toward a target and explore use of magnets to push cars up a ramp, move a magnetic mouse through a maze and more—as they learn all about magnetism & magnetic fields! After using tons of brain power, students can relax and read a fairy tale using Fairy Tales Problem Solving STEM Kits. This kit will allow the children to engineer happier endings to fairy tales— as they create and test solutions to help a prince scale a tower to rescue Rapunzel, construct a bridge that keeps 3 goats safe from the troll and create and test solutions to get the Gingerbread Man across a river.
With these awesome materials, the students in my classroom will be ready to show off their new skills before you know it.
The Stem for Early Learners project will provide STEM materials for my students as I continue to foster growth and development in all areas especially in the science and math arena!
