Tomorrow's Problem Solvers

Help me give my students a hands-on way to respond to the stories they love to hear. My students will be actively engaged in the story by using the fairy tale problem solving STEM kits!

My Students

The best way to teach students is to give them hands-on experiences. There is a lot of technology in today's world which sometimes hinders students' interactions with other students. My goal is to get students interacting with each other, working together, and cooperating while using their problem solving skills.

My students come to school each day eager and excited to learn!

I teach at a school with a low income/high poverty population. It is my goal to make learning fun and practical, while giving them a foundation of skills to build upon in later grade levels.

My Project

My students love read alouds. It's one of my favorite times of the day and it's one of their favorite times as well. These activities will fully engage them and actually make them a part of the stories they love to hear!

The Fairy Tale STEM Problem Solving kits will take ordinary comprehension strategies to the next level!

Students will listen to the story and then get to help the characters in the book by solving their problem. Problem solving and critical thinking are skills that are imperative for life and this is a fun way for students to hone in on those skills.
