My Students

My first and second graders have amazing imaginations. When they are given "Free Time" during the day, one of the most popular things they love to do is build and create. We have some Legos, dominoes, pattern blocks, and other blocks the students currently use to create and build with. More materials would allow us to have more small groups working on building projects.

The self confidence and team work, building and creating fosters among my students, is incredible.

Creating STEM activities in my classroom will allow my students to become confident, successful, and engaged learners.

My Project

STEM materials such as Brain Flakes, Magna Tiles, Marble Run, and Straw Connectors allow students to participate in engaging, purposeful learning. They also help foster cooperation, team building, and appropriate social interaction among students.

Open ended activities promote excellent language opportunities for students.

Creative building encourages students to share their ideas and explain to others about their projects. Both oral and written language skills will flourish.

Listening skills will also benefit as students work together to create projects. By carefully listening to their peers, children will properly engage with others to offer encouragement, praise, and problem solving solutions when problems arise.
