My Students

My kindergarteners are creative, energetic and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and learn how to express their creativity through hands-on learning. Seeing the joy and how proud they are after creating a masterpiece all while problem solving and using their engineering skills to build their creations is what our kindergarten program is all about, encouraging their love for learning.

My Project

Students often get excited when they have created something they are proud of! With these toys, my students will get their brains working and be able to work with other students to create, explore, and build. These toys are hands-on and allow students to create all types of things while working on skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). They are free to explore and build whatever they can imagine. These will definitely keep my students entertained, excited about learning, and keep the creativity flowing all while working on their social skills. We would love to be able to learn and explore with these great STEM toys this school year!
