Miss Weinstein and I team up to make buddy time extra special, meaningful, and engage in STEM activities through a program we have created called: STEMagination Station. Each week, we start with a children's story, and then expand up on that story with STEM projects tied to the tale. Check out our buddies site, STEMagination Station, for all of the details and weekly updates with photos documenting our buddies adventures!
For example: When we read RAPUNZEL, one challenge was to build the tallest, free-standing tour using only dried spaghetti and marshmallows. Another involved creating the strongest Rapunzel hair using only Pull-n-Peel Twizzlers.
For example: One group constructed an IGLOO, because the Kinder class is working on the letter/i/. Another group built slides, since /s/ is another featured letter.
Check out snapshots from our first session below! We can't wait to meet again this week and in the weeks to come!
