My Students

My students are a diverse group of learners. They are diverse in both ethnicity and ability levels. They are highly energetic and fascinated by exploring the world around them. They are enthusiastic about all parts of the school day, whether it's reading a new book, playing a game, solving math problems, or sharing ideas in a story. They are hooked!

Exploration is the key to success!

They have been seen to dance, sing, and act in the classroom in order to remember the standards being taught. They want to discover and discuss ideas. All students have strengths, and my students are given the opportunities to share theirs. All talents and abilities are given the chance to shine.

My Project

Please help me provide highly engaging STEM toys for my students to use in the classroom. Science, technology, engineering, and math are fields that are constantly changing and growing. Students need opportunities to experience the scientific and engineering processes.

These morning STEM toys organized in buckets will provide my students experiences with emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving.

These buckets, used first thing in the morning, engage students and inspire them to be creative. Students share materials in groups of 3 or 4 to construct objects of their own design. These highly motivating activities teach higher level thinking, which carries over into other areas of learning.
