    55. 5 STEM Activities for February

    55. 5 STEM Activities for February

    February is one of my favorite months, and that is because my birthday happens to be on Valentine’s Day! I’m sure you know by now that I love a good theme.



    In today’s episode, I share five February STEM activities you can use in your classroom. These are lessons that I have done with my students over the years, and they have absolutely loved them, so I know that your students will too.



    All of these STEM activities for February that I share can be done as one-day challenges, or you can spread them out over time. I have also done some of these activities when I was a classroom teacher, so you can implement them whether you’re a STEM teacher or a classroom teacher.

    52. What does a K-6 STEM Teacher Do? with Kristin Kinner

    52. What does a K-6 STEM Teacher Do? with Kristin Kinner

    In today's episode, I interview Kristin Kenner, a K through sixth STEM teacher who taught in the regular classroom for over 25 years. Many of you will relate to Kristin's experience since many of you were also in the classroom before your STEM role. Kristin and I were talking over the summer before her role in STEM, and she was super nervous and asking for advice.



    I knew that the experience she already had would be so helpful in her STEM role. In this episode, Kristin shares her journey as a classroom teacher turned STEM teacher, how she's received grants to purchase materials for her STEM classroom, lessons from my TpT shop that Kristin has implemented in her classroom, and much more!
