I hope you are all doing well!
If you would like to donate supplies for my classroom I would be forever grateful! Click on the link here and you will find my Wish List on Amazon. Everything is already set up to be shipped to the school address! Feel free to choose a different brand of any of the items as well. I’m not picky. 🙂 THANK YOU to those who have donated already! I appreciate YOU!
Science and STEM-fest preparation has begun! Students are going to start signing up for science fair and STEM-fest. This is a requirement for all students at San Tan Charter School, although they can pick either science fair or a STEM project. The science fair involves them choosing an experiment to perform and creating a tri-fold poster about their scientific process. The STEM-fest entails students getting to choose between multiple challenges (details not included yet) and building/ creating something to successfully complete the challenge. Students will be signing up for either Stem-fest or science fair this week at school!
