Mrs. Rice from Cocoa FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

STEM Time

My students need some STEM activities that are hands on. It will allow the boys and girls to explore and play with something that will foster their reading skills and curiosity at the same time.

My Students

I have an exuberant group of second graders. They are excellent readers and would benefit greatly from projects that hook their attention. They are active and prefer hands on learning. I encourage movement around the room when lessons permit. I also enjoy observing them interact with each other in a positive and cooperative way.

Having STEM in the classroom will broaden their horizons and get them thinking on a different plane.

I want these students to develop excellent problem solving skills. It is important in this ever-changing world we live in.

My Project

The STEM activities I have chosen are for students to use independently or in small groups. It will allow them to explore and play in a relaxed setting. Since they are in second grade, they will be able to read the directions and build their confidence.

I am excited for them to have an opportunity to see how fun learning can be.

Children should enjoy the classroom experience in these fundamental early years. Not everything they do should be graded and scrutinized. These materials allow for learning through trial and error...the best way I have figured things out myself! The children will also enjoy the challenge of completing the tasks at hand.

I am requesting some "Can Do" kits. I already have one. They are cool because they have many experiments and all the pieces contained within the can. Even struggling readers can use the directions to complete the tasks like learning the laws of repelling and attraction with magnets.

Another item I would like show blueprints in 3-D for students to build different structures. I like that it will strengthen spatial awareness.

The toy kit I would like to order looks cool because a student can construct a catapult for example. Who wouldn't love that?
