  • My Class Needs STEM Supplies to learn through experiences.

    Launched October 12th, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 23 Students School Size 522 Students

    My Students

    I have 234 eager and dedicated learners in my grade 3/4 combined classroom. Our school has 560 students and is extremely diverse and complex. Approximately 75 percent of the school population are English Language Learners. We also have many students with Aboriginal heritage as well as students that are at risk. Many of our parents work multiple jobs to meet the financial needs of their family and do not have extra funds and/or time to provide their children with engaging learning opportunities.

    How will this project impact them?

    I have been a strong supporter of the Genius Hour and MakerEd movements within our school district and these tools will give my students an opportunity to create, collaborate and explore while learning about building and solving problems. Students will learn real world skills, all while developing their communication and collaboration skills. They will learn how to re-evaluate and assess their own understanding. Children will be given opportunities to struggle and rethink, which will enable them to become learners that can learn and unlearn. Providing my students with experiential learning opportunities is a priority to me, and being able to offer them powerful and effective learning opportunities is my goal. Students really enjoy hands-on learning and love to create. As well, these tools will allow me to provide differentiated learning opportunities for my students.

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.
