My Students

I teach science to a group of over ninety 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade students at a title one school in rural Oklahoma. My students are caring, outgoing, adventurous, and innovative. My students enjoy moving around the room to work, using technology, completing hands on activities, and striving to build a bond that transcends the normal educational environment.

My students love being in our classroom to do hands on projects, learning ways to cooperate with each other, and get to express themselves through STEAM bins & materials to show their knowledge & creativity.

All students at our school are provided a free breakfast and lunch.

My students all have different backgrounds, academic levels, goals, and family/home situations. I have students within a wide range of academic levels and attention levels. There are students that are unable to read and solve basic problems without assistance. I also have students that work above and beyond their grade level expectations. In addition to the diversity in academics there are many social and emotional differences within the classroom as well.

My Project

These materials will allow for students to be active and engaged participants in their own learning. Students will get to use materials to explore their own creativity and ideas as well as complete class projects that allow them to become on the spot problem solvers using scientific processes and relevant experiences.

During the last few years students have missed out on some of the hands on interaction they so desperately need to learn not only educational skills; but to learn ways to socialize, engage, and work with others to problem solve.

My students will work cooperatively during our daily lessons using STEM materials in this project. Students will learn to solve problems and complete hands on challenges that I give to them. They also will use these materials for free thinking and independent hands on stimulation. There are no barriers when it comes to hands on learning because everyone gets to engage no matter their individual needs.

All learners get an opportunity to be included and experience success when you let them take charge and work with their hands and their minds.
