This STEM-based membership will help you up your science, tech, engineering, and math lessons.
Every month, you’ll get a themed lesson with the following things:
- Done-for-you library book lists
- 3-5 fully explained activities for a group
- 2-3 printable activities, games, or challenges
- A bonus STEM challenge (story-inspired, of course!)
How it works
Around the first of each month, I’ll post a new lesson with an annotated picture books list, 3-5 general recommended activities, and a printable with hands-on activities, games, worksheets, or other correlating hands-on learning material. Later in the month, I’ll also post a mini-STEM challenge, also inspired by a picture book. Members are all billed on the first of the month for that month’s activities.
Can I download the lessons?
Yes! Each online lesson will have a link for downloading. I’ll also provide an abbreviated library book checklist for all the books recommended in the lesson. Usually, downloads will be a pdf file. For BONUS UNITS, it may be a zip file.
What if I am unhappy with the membership?
I sincerely hope you will enjoy being a part of STEM Storytime (& More)! That said, you can cancel your monthly subscription at any time. If you are completely unsatisfied, I’ll refund you the cost of your latest month in the membership.
I homeschool, but I don’t teach in a co-op. How will this help me?
I am purposely designing these STEM Storytime lessons for small groups of students. However, some of the activities can be used with just a single student. If you want to add unit-based science lessons, STEM Storytime (& More) will be a great addition to your home education.
I’m a public school teacher, not a homeschooler. Why should I join?
As a homeschool parent, I am most experienced in working with a small group of children in a homeschool situation. That said, the picture books and activities should also work well in a classroom setting! Activities will include printable activity ideas, such as reader’s theater, spinners, scavenger hunts, games, challenge cards, task cards, booklets, and so forth.
What types of activities might be included each month?
I’ve been selling hands-on activities on TeachersPayTeachers and my site shop for 9 years. Here are some of the types of activities I’ve created in the past.
- file folder activities
- board games
- clip cards and puzzles
- cut-and-paste and matching
- reader’s theater
- task cards
- around-the-room or “read the room”
- activity centers using manipulatives, pattern blocks, or other items
- jump out of your seat game
- imagination play
- play-doh activities
- opened ended STEM challenges with recyclables
