Mrs. Camarillo from Las Vegas NV is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Amazing And Creepy Bug Kits

My students need hands-on activities such as the Butterfly Nursery, Real Bugs Discovery Kit, and Ladybug Land to bring learning to life. I plan on incorporating science with writing to make writing exciting.

My Students

I have students who look forward to learning everyday. I want my class to have the same experiences that other schools have. I want learning to be engaging. I want my students to improve because they love what they are writing about in the classroom.

I have a diverse class.

I have 85% Hispanic in my classroom. The students come from a tough neighborhood and lack real life experiences. They appreciate everything they get even if it's not much and they look to me to provide those life long experiences.

My Project

My students need hands on activities such as the Butterfly Nursery, Real Bugs Discovery Kit, and Ladybug Land to bring learning to life. I plan on incorporating science with writing to make writing exciting. My students will use the insect kits to learn about the different life cycles. They will incorporate science with reading and writing. The students will use the magnifiers to help them see the different parts of the insects. Eventually, I can compare and contrast different insects.

By donating to my insect projects, students will love learning because they will get to see real butterflies and other realistic kits that will keep the students attention.

This will help them to write stories and reports. For my English language learners, it will help them retain vocabulary that will help them be more successful. They will leave my classroom having experiences that they won't forget and experiences that they wouldn't get without your help.
