As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking enrich their education with STEM educational activities. My goal is to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to learn to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as A"typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence .
These STEM tools will bring real world creations into our
Kids love thrilling rolling coasters, building, designing , discovering and exploring real world objects. These STEM materials in this project will allow my students to do all of these activities. The materials will give my students opportunities they would not experience at home. I’m hoping I can generate a curiosity that will drive my students to new discoveries. They will be a wonderful enhancement to my STEM theme in our world of transitional kindergarten. By donating to our project you will help foster a love of Science, Engeenering and Math.
