Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 40

Thank you so much for investing in my students learning. They love when I open the STEM kits during our Science stations as well as during recess. My students were very excited when they saw the kits and couldn't wait to get started. They learned how important it is to read the directions first and how to work as a team. Enjoy the pictures, this couldn't have happened without your support.

Best,

Ms. Alekic

Original Grant Overview

Goal

The goal of this project is to enhance the Math and Science curriculum for our 4th grade students with hands on activities!  

 

What will be done with my students

Our school has science labs that the students absolutely love working in. I would love to see that passion and interest carried into the classroom through a variety of critical thinking activities that the students can earn on a daily basis. If students finish early in Math or Science they can start on the STEM labs. They can also work on these during recess and I can use them as a station/center in Science or Math.

These materials would add a really exciting opportunity for students who may be interested in demonstrating competency in science and math through a STEM-inspired project. During math, they can demonstrate connections to current mathematical practices and standards. Use during science would allow them to apply the scientific method when problem solving.

By having multiple plans ready for these materials, I am insuring that students will have access to these items more frequently than a one-time project set-up.  

 

Benefits to my students

By promoting creativity and problem solving within the classroom every day students will begin to learn and appreciate the value of these skills on a much deeper level. By ensuring that the students have access to personally relevant STEM activities, they may discover that science, technology, engineering and mathematics covers so much more than they previously thought.

According to the Department of Education, a student who engages with STEM develops the ability to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and make sense of information. These skills are so critical, not only to their personal growth, but to the growth of our nation.

As a teacher of 37 students, my job is to promote a life-long love of learning. These tools really showcase how that would be possible to children.  

 

Describe the Students

My students are my passion. I am extremely devoted to doing anything and everything I can to help them make learning gains. In addition, the students themselves desperately want to make learning gains and have opportunities to feel success and I truly feel the elements of these new books and games will help them to do it.

My students are part of a Title 1 School. All students at our school suffer from low income and high poverty. 100% of our students receive free lunch. We have a mixture of ESE and low and high performers. A high percentage of our students are also ESOL students.

We follow a tight standards focus calendar as we are considered a transformation school.  

 

Budget Narrative

I am requesting $280 to purchase a variety of STEM-Related resources that will appeal to the variety of learning styles in my classroom.The $45 are for tax and shipping. All of the items I am requesting will be purchased from lakeshorelearning.com
