My Students

We are an energetic group of kindergarten learners! My class is full of very active and engaged kids. My kids love coming to school each day to be learners. We fill our days with many activities and learning games to help our brains get smarter. I have many highly engaged and high level thinkers in my classroom. Keeping them interested and excited about learning is a fun challenge I face each and every day. I want to make learning fun for each and every one of my students regardless of their prior knowledge or level of learning.

My Project

One of my goal's for my kids is to become big thinkers and problem solvers. I want them to learn how to independently solve problems and to see that there is more than one way to solve a problem. The Plan-A-Path Road Builder kit and the Building Brick STEM Challenge kit that I am requesting encourage these higher level thinking skills and give kids ideas on how to solve problems using hands on building sets. Both of these kits allow the kids to do some trial and error to try to find a solution that works. These kits will also show that kids can come to two different outcomes with success showing that their is more than one way to reach a goal.
