My Students

Our school has a diverse population of a variety of races, cultures and socioeconomic statuses, with a majority of students receiving free or reduced lunches. Although many of our students come to school with a variety of challenges, they work hard and strive to persevere through whatever they face.

My first grade classroom is filled with caring and diverse young children who are ready and willing to learn.

Every morning they come to our classroom door with smiles, bright eyes and enthusiastic “good mornings.” Everyday when it’s time to leave I hear, “I’m not ready to leave yet! I want to learn more!” We feed off of each other’s enthusiasm and passion for learning. A love that I hope they will take with them forever.

My Project

All of these materials will be used within the classroom to create STEM bins. Our STEM bins will be used to enhance our science, technology, engineering and math skills. We will use the bins during STEM lessons, as well as, during centers and free time. During these times, the students will be able to make creations based on a prompt or goal or make their own creations using their imaginations. With the variety of materials, the students will never get bored!

With these hands-on materials in our STEM bins, students will be learning and using all kinds of integral skills, like problem solving, perseverance, and creativity, all while feeling like they are playing!

What a wonderful way to show students that learning is fun We can't wait to get started with our STEM bins!
