My Students

My school is designated as a Title I school where most of my students receive free lunch. They all come from different backgrounds and not all of them have access to different tools or experiences outside of the classroom, but they come to school each day curious and ready to learn.

They are all so lovely and respectful.

They love to explore and learn about books. This year they all will learn to read and write. This is a really amazing experience for them.

My Project

This week, I attended an amazing STEM training. The class I visited during the training had lots of STEM kits. I was so impressed seeing the kindergarten students so motivated and engage during STEM learning.

I want to give my students the opportunity to explore and learn using STEM materials/Supplies in our classroom.

We will use the kits daily as part of our STEM learning. This project will definitely help me start out the magic of STEM in my room.

My students, as any Kindergarten student are more engaged when they are given hands-on​ opportunities to explore and learn.

Please help me give my students this amazing opportunity
