My Students

My students are thinkers, readers, dreamers, scientists, writers, mathematicians, and genuinely the hardest-working students you could ever meet. In our fifth grade classroom at a Title I school in Northern Utah, they put forth their best effort in learning about the world around them. Many of my students are ELL students. Our school has over 60% of students who are on free or reduced-price lunch. My students come from a low socioeconomic community where technology isn't always readily available at home.

Many of my students come to school barely having their basic needs met at home, so I want to give them every chance possible to have their needs met at school.

My students deserve to have access to the tools they need to be successful in their learning. By providing engaging and educational experiences, they will grow in their learning.

My Project

One of my students' favorite parts of the week is when we get to use the STEM stations. They absolutely love to create and use critical-thinking skills to build and code their creations. Options are extremely important during this time, and, without more supplies, these options are limited.

I plan to use these supplies as stations where students will be able to explore the concepts of creation, collaboration, and synthesis through STEM projects.

The Squishy Circuits kits and Makey Makey Collection align with our curriculum through our electricity unit. Students will have the opportunity to explore electricity in a fun, unique, and safe way. The Sphero Mini and Coding Master board game will keep the students engaged in learning about how to code. Integrated together, all of these chosen sets will create stations that will work perfectly to engage students in learning about how to make their creations work.
