My students come from a variety of backgrounds and some are English Language Learners. Their reading levels vary and they need extra help to be successful in and outside the school setting.
My students are very eager to learn and try very hard.
Some do not have the support from home as our other students have. Their parents do the best they can, but it is difficult to provide the help that they need because of their limited English and reading skills.
To make my student more successful, STEM activities will help them in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. My students are very eager to learn. They are so creative and love to create and build things. They will use pattern blocks to make different designs and then recreate the pattern on paper using the pattern block stickers. They are learning to add and subtract and use a lot of manipulatives and will use the number lines while they working math problems.
With the activities such as Bridge Building, Create a Chain Reaction, Building Brick STEM Challenge, Marble Run, Science STEM Magnet Station and Survive the Earthquake, my students will become more successful by using their creative minds to build and create different projects.
They will work together reading and following the directions to build bridges, building pathways for marbles to move, and make a building that will survive an Earthquake. They will use magnets and use problem solving skills to make objects move.
Using the Learn to Code Lady Bug will help them to create a code to get the ladybug to go to the correct answer. Their creative minds will open up and all of these materials will help them to become engineers, scientists and mathematicians.
