Help me give my students STEM materials, including math counters, CD-ROMs for technological learning, Scholastic magazine subscriptions, and other items.
My students are just turning 5. For many of them, this is their first experience in a school setting. Some of the students have special learning needs, and many are learning English for the first time. The majority of their families live below the poverty line and rely on our free meal plan for their children's breakfast and lunch.
Our school is a high poverty, Title I school, with high expectations for all.
Each day we practice letters, phonics and sight words. We study science and math. We incorporate technology through the use of iPad apps, and we learn beginning engineering concepts through the use of building blocks and other manipulatives. At the end of the school day, the children are so excited to see their parents and tell them all the things they did at school. The parents are very supportive, and they enjoy spending time with their little ones, reading stories and learning new things.
Help me to bring STEM learning to my class of 4-year olds! I have a large number of girls in the class this year, and currently, females are under-represented in the STEM career fields. My girls can help change that if they have the motivation and the necessary skills sets.
The items I have requested will have all my students, and particularly my girls, counting and learning number concepts in a hands-on way.
This is the best kind of learning for young students. They will also have engineering opportunities as they put together "roller coaster" pieces to create successful paths at the magnet center, and assemble pieces to create vehicles. The CD-ROMs I have requested will bring technology to the classroom and be used for whole-class learning opportunities at the Smartboard. The Scholastic magazines are wonderful reading material focused on science concepts throughout the school year.
Young children learn best when they have manipulatives and visual materials that they can see and handle for themselves. These STEM resources will benefit my students in their learning, will stir their curiosity, and will be a fun way to learn! My girls will have a chance to see that STEM learning is fun and challenging, which will increase their participation and motivate them to continue to seek out STEM classes as they grow up. Thank you for considering this project!
