Just wrapped up our summer STEM training made possible with the Dow Corning Foundation and Saginaw Valley State University and WOW! I have learned a lot! I am so excited to try adding robotics to my fifth grade classroom with Sphero and specifically targeting students’ opinions about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Revamping my classroom to be more STEM oriented is rather daunting, so on this raining Saturday I’ve decided to focus on “hunting and gathering” ideas from the internet. Today, I think I’ll focus on collecting interesting math stories from history to use throughout the year as daily math lesson launches and get students drawn into what they are learning. I also found this nifty bulletin board on Pinterest I thought I’d share! I don’t have very much wall space in my classroom but I will find a way to incorporate it somehow!
