I work in a diverse kindergarten classroom with 25 energetic five and six-year-olds. We are located in St. Paul, Minnesota. Our school has many students who come from low-income families. Over 50% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Many of the families in my classroom do not have the funds to provide their child with materials that build literacy, math, and social skills. Within my classroom, I have a wide range of academic and behavior needs.
My students love to explore and create!
Watching their imaginations grow and flourish is the best part of my job. The projects I post on DonorsChoose.org are to support and encourage my students and to continue creating a welcoming classroom where learning is fun!
I would like to incorporate more STEM activities in my classroom. The activities in the set encourage hands-on learning while improving problem-solving skills and analytical thinking... in kindergarten.
It's never too early to begin learning about real-world concepts and problem-solving skills; best of all, it's fun!
Students love to build and create. Encouraging kids to use their imagination and think outside the box early will make them more successful later in life.
As our world grows and changes, our classrooms and schools need to grow and change, too. We need your help to improve our curriculum, expand topics discussed in our classroom, and provide quality learning opportunities for students.
