My Students

My students love to facilitate their own learning and take leadership roles daily. They want each classmate to get the concepts not just get them for themselves. They care about each other. Each day when one of the leaders passes out materials they ask questions about how they will each use the materials. For example: "How will we use this magnifying glass to see our seeds today?" They love to help each other learn and discover. They are excited about learning together.

My Project

These Science, technology, engineering, art and math activities will give students opportunities to work together to persevere and complete projects. Each day students work together in labs to solve problems. These activities give students opportunities to make a plan, design, hear specific designs, decorate, predict outcomes and make trail "runs". Students are excited and love to work together to meet the objectives that are set by the Kindergarten standards in our class.

In these activities students get to build the vehicles , set their targets/objectives together and change their designs according to the work they decide to do.

They will listen to themselves, plan in the listening center and make decisions as to go through the processes of engineering. Students learn and experience through Vehicle Development that they can develop their plans together to the best of their abilities while making real life connections.
