Mrs. Chamberlain from Sacramento CA is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

STEMtastic

My students need hands-on math, science, and technology manipulatives, games, models, and dvd's to help them master the common core standards.

My Students

Do you remember doing science experiments or working on your math facts in elementary school? My students love to explore new concepts and practice what they have learned in math on a daily basis.

I have a delightful group of enthusiastic students this year who learn best when given hands-on learning experiences.

Our school strives to work with parents to provide a rich educational experience. Though most parents would like to expose their children to multiple science and math resources, it just isn't possible for many of them at this time. The families are supportive in making sure their child attends school and comes with homework complete. Our staff works diligently to give students more than what is provided in the textbooks.

My Project

There are many ways in which the requested resources would benefit my students. The science and math games will enable my students to have hands on practice of the material taught on a weekly basis. The science models/compost viewer will demonstrate scientific concepts with visuals. The interactive educational DVDs will be used to demonstrate standards in a fun and engaging matter. The mini iPad's with cases will be used to integrate educational apps into the curriculum to support all standards across the curriculum.

I can just visualize now the "aha" moments the students will have as they handle the science models and are able to create their own compost.

Being able to review using science and math games instead of just review sheets will provide a learning experience that will stay with the students long after the unit is completed.
