  • My Class Needs STEAM materials to guide student inquiry

    Launched October 1st, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 20 Students School Size 600 Students

    My Students

    My grade 1 class is comprised of eleven boys and nine girls from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. The school is located in a mostly middle class neighbourhood of dual income families. Most of the families live in one of the many townhouse complexes surrounding the school. The school population is over 700 students, with eleven portables on site. As a result, our resources are stretched too thin as we try to accomodate so many more students than the school was originally built for about ten years ago.

    How will this project impact them?

    My students enjoy having a "soft start" in the morning. I currently put out STEAM Bins filled with dollar store manipulatives for the first 10-15 minutes of the school day. This allows them to build and create through exploratory and purposeful play. My ultimate goal is to provide my students with cross-curricular opportunities to develop their skills in design thinking and making with high quality Wintergreen materials. If there is anything I have learned in all my years of teaching, it's that students learn best by "doing", rather than through passive consumption of information. Additional STEAM materials would allow my students to personalize their learning through guided inquiry.

    * Fulfillment Materials: This covers the physical costs of processing teacher and student thank-you letters and pictures, including printing, postage, labels, envelopes, cover sheets, etc.

    ** Payment Processing Fee: An average of fees charged to MyClassNeeds for processing donations (e.g. credit card payments through a secure server). We have worked hard to select the most secure option for the cost.

    *** Optional Donation: An optional donation to support MyClassNeeds which is calculated at 15% of the project’s price tag. The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds. To do that we need a world- class website supported by strong business systems and processes that improve over time.
