My Students

As with every classroom, the students in my classroom have a range of abilities and interests. My students are eager second graders, who are excited to learn and explore. They are an inclusive group of both general education students and special education students who have a range of needs and learning styles. Each day, they come to school curious about what the day has in store for them.

They look forward to interacting socially with their peers, and are motivated by hands-on experiences that help develop their creativity and critical thinking skills!

By providing engaging hands on activities, my students are able to stay more focused and on task. STEM bins will give my students the opportunity to engage in more hands-on learning.

My Project

My students need more hands-on, STEM activities!

STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, is the key to our future.

Introducing students to STEM bins now will allow students to prepare for the future by allowing them to think inventively and imaginatively, learn to be problem solvers, and develop building skills using their creativity.

The items I am requesting such as pipe cleaners, straws, legos, Play-Doh, craft sticks, etc. will allow students to think "outside the box". These items will be placed in bins, and the students will be given task cards to create solutions to various real world problems. The students will be required to use their imaginations and their building materials to come up with a solution to the tasks. These exciting activities will require the students to think creatively, and encourage them to work in partnerships, teams or independently.

My second graders are visual and kinesthetic learners who love building, creating, and drawing. These STEM bins will be an exciting adventure in our classroom that all students will be able to use and enjoy.
