STEM In Action: 2nd Graders Need Materials

My students need STEM Kits for more exposure to hands on science, technology, engineering, and math to enhance their learning across the subject areas and get them excited about learning.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, a high percentage of my students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to enrich their learning by providing them with meaningful learning experiences that incorporate STEM activities .

My students are eager to learn, creative, and they are inquisitive.

They enjoy hands on learning and opportunities to work cooperatively with their peers. I am eager to begin a new school year and am excited to incorporate more STEM activities within the curriculum for my 25 new second graders. My goal is to acquire STEM materials in order to provide my students with learning opportunities that enhance their science, technology, engineering, and math skills.

My Project

The STEM materials and math centers will help to enrich my second grade student’s learning by providing hands on learning that target science, technology, engineering, and math skills. This will enable my students to become more confident and experience feelings of success and enjoyment while learning. Second graders love reading fairy tales. The Fairy Tales STEAM kit will be utilized to extend reading instruction focused on fairy tales into other subject areas such as science, technology, engineer and math. The STEM Bundle will provide hands on science, technology, engineering, and math skills to be incorporated within the learning activities.

I am eager to implement Daily 3 this year as a part of my math curriculum.

The components are “Math With the Teacher,” “Math by Myself,” and “Math With Someone.” The math instant learning center materials will provide great centers/activities for the “Math With Someone” station. These learning centers are designed for first through third graders, which will enable me to meet the various learning abilities of my students.
