    My Students

    This year I am teaching a class of grade ones. The students come from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, as well as have different learning styles. They come to school with curiosity and are excited to learn. They love to explore and learn. Play centers is a favourite activity for them. This is a time where they can be creative, problem solve and work with other. It is important for them to have a variety of activities to keep them motivated and on task.

    How will this project impact them?

    I would like to continue to create an environment where students can build their creative and critical thinking skills as well as their communication skills. The manipulatives would be part of play centers where they participate in unstructured and imaginative play, as well as other times. Students will have more choices of what they can use during activity time. When they do choose things like blocks, lego and playdough, it is amazing to see what things they do create. They will be able to work in small groups using the materials for building a variety of creative things. It will be a great way me to observe and listen to how they problem solve and communicate. The students can be challenged in a variety of ways in the area of STEM not just in the Makerspace our school but also in the classroom.
