Stories and Dollar Store STEM: Linking Literacy and Hands-On STEM Activities in a Post-Pandemic Classroom

Callie Sharkey, Literacy Collation of Palm Beach County
Grades: K-8
How do teachers keep students engaged without breaking the bank? Dollar-Store STEM! In this session, both formal and informal educators will get direct practice with hands-on, cost effective, versatile STEM activities. We will discuss how to pair these projects with books and characters students know and love, so teachers can integrate literacy with STEM, and tailor the level to their classroom’s needs. Merging tasks like reading with STEM expedites the learning of both – which directly tackles learning loss while keeping students involved and having fun. Participants will receive at least one sample of a STEM activity and coordinated lesson while supplies last. The focus of this specific session of Stories & STEM is geared to kindergarten – 5th grade, but can be adapted for other grade levels.
