My Students

I work in a Title I school in South Carolina where our motto is "Every Student Counts, and Every Moment Matters!" My students come from diverse backgrounds and all receive 100% free breakfasts and lunches at school. Many come from homes where English is not spoken. Some family members come from countries where they were unable to receive an education. My awesome students come to school eager to learn each day. We work to ensure our learning is engaging, effective, and FUN! I also recognize that, as a teacher, my job is to provide more than just academic knowledge to students. I strive to teach the WHOLE child and make sure all of their needs are met daily!

My Project

These materials will make an amazing impact on my students' ability to apply science, engineering, and math knowledge to create structures and other items. Students will engage in problem-solving tasks using these manipulatives. Learning will be self-directed and encourage students to persevere with others throughout the problem-solving process.

Materials will be used during daily morning STEM time to encourage creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, and problem solving.

These amazing materials, including Bristle Blocks, Zoobs, magnetic Picasso Tiles, straw builders, and Brain Flakes, will spark creativity and will be highly interesting for my second graders. The bins will be rotated out each week so that materials stay "new" and engaging! Task cards will be created and included with bins to challenge and encourage students to use their skills in new ways.

Thank you for taking time to read about our project, and we hope you find it worthy of supporting!
