My Students

The students in my second grade class are full of energy. They always come to school with smiles on their faces and look forward to the day. Our classroom atmosphere is always busy and full of joy.

Every single child in my class attributes a sense of happiness and motivation.

My students also love hands-on projects. I have several students who excel in school and love to help the lower students. I am lucky to have so many students willing to help. These innovative minds are bound for greatness!

My Project

STEM stands for: science, technology, engineering, and math. Adding STEM bins and STEM materials in our classroom would open up a whole new world of growing innovative minds. I am asking for linking straws, toy building blocks, interlocking connecting sets, a different kind of connecting blocks, and a storage cabinet to put them all in to keep my classroom organized.

Using STEM activities in the classroom allows students to use their brain power to invent new ideas and projects.

In between lessons, students can use the props from the STEM bins to continue their learning, rather than hopping on a tablet game. Although the technology in our class is a great tool, the students need a variety of learning options.

These manipulatives also engage the kinesthetic learners in the classroom.

I am a firm believer in reaching out to all types of learners in my classroom. I believe that adding STEM bins to my classroom will ensure my classroom's atmosphere is fun, engaging, and innovative!
