My Students

My students are lovable and kind kindergarteners! They are extremely eager to learn and are very appreciative of everything that is given to them. What I enjoy most about teaching them is that they always try hard to please but sometimes it is difficult because my school lacks resources. I would love to give these children everything they deserve.

We've been getting by on what we have but how nice would it be to really enhance these young minds by enriching their learning with supplies that are desperately needed.

My Project

My students need a Circuit 2 to create insect t-shirts and insect posters for our upcoming Science Unit and Celebration of Creepy Crawly Things.

We've got that learning "bug"!

Help my little ones as they explore the wonderful world of insects and other creepy crawly things. At the end of the unit we will be celebrating with a Bug Ball (party). We will use the Circuit 2 to design insect T-shirts and posters for their celebration as we parade on achievements through the school. They will also be able to make insects diagrams using the Circuit 2 to cut out the different body parts of insects.

Our class is un"bee"lievably excited to learn about the importance of our friends the insects!
