My Students

I create an environment where learners are doers. My students need 5 bucket balances, tape and bathroom cups to embark on a STEM adventure with me. I want to use the bucket balances in whole group exploration. I am new to STEM but, by the end of the year, I am going to introduce my students to at least 5 STEM activities. Dream big or don't dream at all!

I have three classes of Preschool/PreK age students.

There are 36 students total. They are eager to learn and create. Our school is a fun place with high expectations. Our parents are happy to help when called upon, and most of the kids have a safe place to call home.

My Project

With five new bucket balances and other basic materials, I can facilitate whole group exploration. I will use the STEM activity book in my order as a guide for this STEM journey. I am also taking a college class this year to help me embark on this journey for my students.

A donation to this project will help me become a better facilitator of learning and exploration.

Preschool age children are such sponges, and I want to tap into that energy. Please consider donating to my project. Thank you.
