The materials that I am requesting will be used by my students regularly. In Montessori, students choose materials to explore once they have been given a lesson. While we have materials already, these materials will provided a richer environment for students to explore in greater depth and with greater motivation because of the engagin nature of the materials. These materials will be used to build upon what students are learning and foster deeper thinking and understanding. Instead of just listening to what the life cycle of a frog is, students can see models, create diagrams, and manipulate materials to better understand the concepts of a life cycle. Other materials requested will provide the similarly rich and deep educational experience for students to build a deeper understanding of concepts. These materials include Continent Critters (animals to match with the different continents and biomes of the world), USA SuperToob (identify symbols of the USA and learn facts), Safari Around the World figurines (Symbols from around the world figurines), Breaking Open 10 Geodes (to study the rock cycle and types of rocks), Life Cycle of a Monarch Butterfly (study life cycles of insects), Hundreds board (students create a hundreds board using Montessori materials), Balance scale (measuring and comparing weight/mass), and Wooden number tiles (used to give construct numbers for solving operations problems). By providing quality materials that promote deeper understanding of concepts, students are shown that their education is of utmost value and they are more inclined to be self motivated, lifelong learners! Montessori gives the child the skills needed to explore and trains the child to think deeper independtly by providing material such such as the ones requested.
