Stem in Kindergarten

My students need hands-on engaging learning tools. We are kindergarten and are just starting our educational journey. We are also becoming a stem school. So all of these resources will help us explore.

My Students

Every morning, I greet my students at the door with a good morning and a smile and a hug. I want my students to love coming to our classroom and love learning.

They come from very different backgrounds as we are a small rural town.

For a lot of the students they are going to the same school that their parents went to. Our school is rich in history and pride. Some of my students come from very humble beginnings. Together, we become a family and work together and learn and try to have as much as possible.

My Project

After 14 years in first and second, I am moving down to teach the kindergartners. I am super excited to be their first teacher. I want them to love school and be excited to come to school each day.

We are becoming a STEM school next year and these resources will help my kindergartners learn to explore the world around them.

The STEM bin Building Kits will have my students learn to work together which is an important life skill. The Sensory Dough will give my little guys more hands on experience with making letters and numbers and just getting a chance to be creative.
