My Students

My 1st Grade classroom is full of enthusiastic and wonderfully curious kids! They come each day with a smile on their faces, ready for the excitement of the day. Exposing and encouraging my students in the areas of science, math, and technology is a must in today's world! I strive to prepare lessons that highlight these areas for them.

Even at this age, many of my students express an interest in becoming

an engineer, architect, or even a scientist! They cheer when they are able to participate in any type of hands on task that involves brainstorming, building, and creating. I would love to be able to feed those interests with a multitude of STEM activities.

My Project

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activities help kids to become critical thinkers and problem solvers. I would love to give my students the opportunity to engage with open ended, hands-on materials that encourage exploration, perseverance, and collaboration for kids with all levels of abilities.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to give my students something that they will extremely enjoy but will also help to enhance their science, math, and engineering skills!

The enthusiasm for this type of instruction and learning is always a classroom favorite. Since my STEM supplies are very limited, the items I have selected are all materials that will encourage creative thinking over and over again, producing different outcomes with each use.
