My Students

As my students walk into the classroom, they are ready and eager to learn. Every day they share how much they enjoy coming to school. I want them to feel safe and know they can accomplish anything if they apply themselves. I teach at a school where it's income based and many of the children receive backpack food for the weekend.

My students come from different cultural backgrounds and I try to meet each student’s needs.

Regardless of their backgrounds, my students are excited to learn. They want to do their best in school and achieve their goals in life.

My Project

My students love learning about animals, people, plants, climate, earth and insects. Providing them with science materials that focus on the life cycle of insects will give them a more understanding on how insects live. Our students will use these materials to explore their ability through characteristics of living things. These activities will be used during learning centers times throughout the day as we are learning together. Providing nature and science materials and activities gives my students an opportunity to develop vocabulary and learn to understand basic life cycle concepts. By having a Butterfly Garden Set, Giant Magnetic Butterfly Life Cycle and Real Bugs Discovery Kit, my students can watch caterpillars develop into beautiful butterflies in this intriguing observation kits. My Backyard Books (Set of 8), will be used by my students, so that they can demonstrates their knowledge of the characteristics of living things.

Your generous donations to our project will give my students’ fun and exciting understanding of Life Cycle’s.

Providing science materials and activities gives my students an opportunity to develop vocabulary and learn to understand Life Cycle concepts. By creating safe, hands-on opportunities to explore their world, young children become aware of the wonders around them, beginning what can be a life-long interest in and concern for our environment.
