My Students

Our school is full of bright and unique individuals. Each and every one of the students has different needs and wants. The kids and staff accept each other, which makes for an exciting and eventful time at our school! Our students are from an urban, low-income area. They have the biggest hearts, but sometimes they don't show it in appropriate ways. I think that our students have amazing possibilities in life. If they could just try to accomplish the tasks at hand, they can do it!

My Project

After recently becoming a STEM-certified school, we are looking for more ways to engage our students and expand their thinking while looking at the big picture. In my classroom, I have a long table that would be perfect for a tinker station to hold all of our STEM bins.

Whether it is used for a center during classroom time or an early finisher, I think that these supplies, including glue sticks, building blocks, brain flakes, a marble run course, and magnetics, would be the perfect way to fill our STEM bins to add more excitement in the classroom.

After my first year having STEM bins, it has been such a joy and pleasure to watch my students finish their work early (and correctly) to want to grab a STEM bin to get creative. I think that having these new items for our STEM bins will continue to feed my students' hunger for wanting to do their work and get creative!
