My Students

Kindergartners are a breed all their own! Just beginning their formal schooling experience, they enter the classroom with little to no background knowledge or understanding. The kindergarten year is imperative in developing the foundational skills students need to succeed in years to come. Specifically, at my school, students face additional socio-economic difficulties being in a low-income school district. Our school is a Title One school with limited resources available for new and reliable technology and supplies. The technology we use in the school is outdated, unreliable, and not always available for use. My students deserve to have resources available that they can count on for learning and growing in an ever-changing world.

My Project

Kindergarten is an exciting and imperative school year, laying the foundation for years to come. I want to start my students on the right path toward STEM knowledge and a love of learning! These materials will help my kinesthetic learners use hands-on supplies to learn key STEM concepts, like number sense, magnetic force, sorting by attribute, and many more ideas that these materials can be used for! The storage shelf and color-coded bins will greatly assist fostering independence of my Kindergarteners in managing their own supplies! These supplies will impact many students as they can be used for years to come!
