Ms. Stuart from Woodhaven NY is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Stories for STEAM!

My students need read aloud stories so that they can complete hands-on STEAM projects.

My Students

My students are always eager to learn. Many are students who speak anywhere from no English to a good understanding of English, and usually speak another language primarily. The children are so eager to learn. They pair up quickly to help those who need it.

The neighborhood is economically and culturally diverse but some families are at a financial and social disadvantage.

My students do not have many opportunities outside the classroom and love learning through hands-on projects during science. We are developing a computer science and STEM program in our school and inviting our parents as well in part with the CS4ALL initiative.

I know coding, stem and engineering is the future for our children and I would love to give them the advantage.

My Project

The students need some structure around their hands-on STEAM projects. I believe that basing their challenge around a story will help them not only visualize and connect, but help with ELA, writing and math as well. Students will develop social and team building skills while working to solve problems and create something amazing.

What Do You Do With A Box?, Big Pumpkins, Balloons Over Broadway, I Wish To Be A Christmas Tree and so many more are books we wish to include in our curriculum.

With catchy titles like this we are sure to peak their curiosity - after all wouldn't you like to be a Christmas Tree?
