Goal

Our goal at Westgate Elementary Kindergarten is to enrich our curriculum with STEM projects. While we have attempted to do this already we are finding we have lots of great ideas, but we don't have the materials to execute them. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will use Stem manipulatives to enrich our curriculum. For example, if we are reading the three billy goats gruff the children will design and build a bridge for the billy goats to cross. If we are working with shapes students will use the manipilatives to create the shapes. Since we are planning on buying manipulatives that are not consumable we will be be able to use these for multiple years, not just one year. 

 

Benefits to my students

The students will be able to enrich their thinking though hands on stem manipulatives. The students will benefit in so many ways. They get to practice team work, planning, problem solving, and cause and effect to name a few. The kindergarten teachers at Westgate are committed to giving our students a quality education through all avenues of learning.  

 

Describe the Students

The kindergarten classes at Westgate are comprised of a diverse group of students. We are a title 1 school so most of our students come from low socioeconomic status. We have students who don't speak English, we have students who are ESE (Speech, academic, and behavior). We also have students that range from low performing to high performing. But most importantly we have students who are eager to learn and using STEM will inspire their learning even more! 

 

Budget Narrative

We are seeking funding for STEM materials for five kindergarten classrooms. 1000 dollars for each classroom.
THANKS!!!
