Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My students are in 6th-8th grade and are in my science/special education class and they are simply amazing! They’re quirky, love learning, need hands-on activities and graphic organizers to truly grasp the knowledge. Especially with all the concepts taught in 8th grade like Newton's laws/atoms! Content can get quite difficult as they balance home life, eight classes, and school life.

Students are still recovering from the traumatizing events that occurred due to COVID-19, they are in high need of emotional support and an environment that is fun and exciting.

They need the support more than ever and deserve a better year!

My Project

Thank you so much with your consideration in funding our project!

The galaxy projectors will be used to give students an out of this world experience by making a tunnel as they come into the classroom to "visit space"!

The rest of the materials will be used as follows: the vacuum, masks, & wipes will be used to keep our classroom clean. The chips, jolly ranchers, pencils will be used as incentives for students who get questions about the content on space correct. I plan to create a Jeopardy game of sorts and best team gets the snacks. Anything helps and is super appreciated! Thank you and have a blessed day!
