My students come from all walks of life and from literally all over the world. Despite their differences, my students are kind and compassionate young learners. They are full of life, energy, and spunk! Kindergarten is an extremely busy place to be (especially in our half-day program).
Our school is a Title 1 building with a high ELL (English Language Learner) population.
We have students from a vast variety of backgrounds with varying academic abilities. The growth students make in their time in Kindergarten is truly remarkable. It is a joy to watch them learn and grow.
My students need a variety of hands-on learning opportunities to help to develop important problem-solving skills from an early age. Research shows us that our youngest students learn best through play and hands-on activities. In our half-day kindergarten program, we are always crunched for time. Often opportunities for play and STEM are the first activities to be skipped in favor of literacy and paper-pencil math activities.
These STEM materials will give my students the opportunity to have constructive playtime with engaging and fun hands-on activities every day!
The magnetic blocks and Lakeshore Manipulative Library can be used in a variety of activities from building new sky scrappers to making letters and words. We can use these materials to create bins of activities for students who finish work early, for kids who arrive to class early, for center activities, as well as to enhance our lessons. For a kindergarten student, the learning possibilities these materials have the potential to provide are endless!
Inspiring a love of learning is the best gift a teacher can give a student. These STEM materials will help my students to develop a love of learning about science and engineering while fostering relationships and team building, improving problem-solving skills, and so much more.
