PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

BIG NEWS for the 2016-2017 school year!

I am pleased to announce my first STEM Subscription Membership. This is a membership for the 2016-2017 school year for all K-2nd grade teachers that are anxious to get STEM aligned with CCSS and NGSS up and running in their classes!

What is it?
Basically you pay a 1 time fee and have access to all my current K-2nd grade STEM packets (all available individually on TPT right now) as well as all additional packets created within the 2016-2017 school year. Current packets combined are over 200 pages of resources!

How does it work?
Once you purchase this membership you will have instant access to the zip file containing ALL of my current STEM packets for K-2nd grade. As the year progresses I will add more STEM packets for K-2nd grade to the zip file, and you will be alerted when changes have been made. Simply re-download the zip file to access the new packets!

What are the benefits of this membership?
Rather than purchasing my STEM packets individually on TPT ($5 each packet), you will get all my current and upcoming packets for the one time fee! HUGE SAVINGS in the long run!

Will the price remain the same?
Owing to the size of the files, you pay a one time fee, but certain packets will stop becoming available owing to TPT's limit on size, so make sure you download the new packets every month as they are released.

What can I expect in the upcoming STEM packets?
I try to keep my packets based around the NGSS and CCSS standards to make it more accessible to all teachers. My content is based around literacy and/or thematic areas (EX: Valentine's Day).

Do I need anything else to complete these STEM activities?
Yes, each packet has a list of hands on materials needed to complete the STEM activities, but all materials are easy to come by through donations or supermarkets. I have worked hard to design activities around materials that everyone has access to!

For the full list of the current packets please see below:

Building Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Trees
