My Students

My first grade classroom is located in a low-income community in Maryland with a large population of English language learners. It is a Title I school with more than 80% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunches.

The students come from diverse backgrounds where they participate in a full inclusion classroom.

These students are all excited, active, and inquisitive young learners who come to school ready to grow and share experiences. Although my students may face different obstacles at home and at school, it is my privilege to help them overcome these challenges and become the best they can be!

My Project

I would like to obtain resources for my students to experience STEM activities in our classroom. During STEM learning, students would collaborate with peers to meet a challenge given to them. Together, students would plan a design based upon resources given, then create their design and adapt as need based upon discoveries when creating. Afterwards, they would reflect back in writing the experience they had. Resources I am asking for are programming kits, paper, and a variety of hands-on materials such as bricks, blocks, connectors, and links.

These materials would provide my students with an opportunity to expand their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math in a hands-on manner that makes learning engaging and fun for them.

With your help, I will be able to open up a world of learning possibilities for my students, as they develop skills unique to these ever growing career fields.
