Mrs. S. from Albany NY is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Super STEM Supplies

Help me give my students STEM items to move us into the 21st century. Children learn better through hands-on activities. They become inquisitive about the world around them and begin to engage their own learning.

My Students

What is there not to love when you spend your day with 23 five year olds? Each day is new, exciting, and filled with a whole lot of love! Teaching in an inner city school in upstate NY, I have found that children at this age are sponges, that are always eager to learn and explore new things!

I have 23 Kindergarten students coming from a variety of different economic and cultural backgrounds, 100% of whom receive free lunch.

This year I have 11 ENL students who speak a variety of languages. I am so excited to engage this year's class! My goal is to help each child move into the 21st century by providing a classroom rich in engaging, hands-on materials.

My Project

This year I am focusing on bringing my class into the 21st century. I am eager to boost my curriculum in both the math and science areas. I know my students will love being actively engaged in activities rather than complete paper and pencil book work.

With a hands-on approach, in both the Math and Science fields, I want to engaged my student's curiosity and love of learning.

I am in the process of creating STEM kits that will enhance the learning of my students. The card stock and contact paper will be used to create sturdy cards with directions and objectives, while craft items will be used to create different projects.

Through these STEM activities, I want my children to become creative thinkers who are motivated to try new things and persevere through an activity. Providing hands-on, engaging activities, I feel will further enhance our curriculum and create future thinkers who are ready to problem solve.
