Mrs. Stevener from Dardenne Pr MO is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Love To Build!

Help me give my students engaging STEM items to include in our classroom. My students would love to use these various building blocks and construction items on a daily basis.

My Students

First grade students are the most amazing kiddos in a school! These students love to come to school every day to learn something new, ask questions, play with their friends and share everything, yes everything, that is going on around them. They have only been on this planet for 6 years but yet the things that they already know and can do are amazing and hilarious. Thank goodness they come to school each day ready to take on a new day of learning and excitement which is why I love working with them.

Did you know that a 1st grader is expected to make the most growth in reading than any other school aged child?

That is a lot to expect of a 6 year old but they can do it with the right resources. First graders need engaging and entertaining books with characters they can make connections with. They need informative books to learn more about that favorite animal they can't stop talking about. Their brains, which are constantly going a million miles a minute, need books and activities that are going to stimulate their thinking and make them ask even more questions. They require a lot resources.

My Project

Each morning when my students arrive and after they unpack, they are to work out of a morning tub. Each tub is filled with various items that allow my students to be creative and have fun. My students love their morning tubs but I need more items to keep them engaged and thinking.

In addition, I can utilize these items in my STEM tubs where students work during intervention time.

First, students plan out a project to build on a blueprint and then they build it using various items such as the items I have requested to bring it to life. These items will make a difference in that they will be used every day!
