My Students

Kindergarten students love to explore and learn new things. This year the students encounter their first full day educational experience. Their academic, social and emotional levels vary greatly, and they LOVE being at school! They are eager learners who absorb information like sponges.

Kindergarten students are very active and need activities that are engaging and challenging.

Five-year-olds move through activities very quickly throughout the day. They need to have multiple sensory/kinistetic activities to meet the needs of many different learning styles.

My Project

STEM is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

STEM activities encourage experimenting, tinkering, building, observing, exploring, problem solving, and creating!

Create curiosity. Create passion. Create an opportunity for kids to push the limits of what they can do. The Design and Build Engineering Centers will allow my students to fall in love with the world of STEM.

Having activities that show real-life implications of STEM can pull together ideas and help to show how they benefit our society and even our world as a whole. STEM education in school is important to spark an interest in pursuing a STEM careers.
