My Students

My 3 year-olds are some of the most amazing children I have ever met. They thrive while living in one of the most dangerous communities in our nation's capital. Some have gone through more in their young lives than many of us will ever have to endure in a lifetime. Yet every day, they walk down a hill to school where they are able to escape the violence that riddles their neighborhood and find solace in our classroom. Despite all of the challenges they face outside the school walls, they still come to school each day ready and excited to learn.

My students blossom with the educational and enrichment opportunities being offered, which helps them to build their background knowledge and exposes them to things they otherwise wouldn't be exposed to.

For all of them, coming to school is where they have opportunities to build their academic and social foundations to set them up for success later in life.

My Project

Children are naturally curious about balls and love to explore the different ways they can make them move and bounce. The topic of study also allows for students to explore the science behind what makes balls bounce and how ramps make balls move.

These materials will be used for students to explore the science behind balls.

They will use the marble run to build and test out their own theories on how to make a path for the marble to travel. They will use the various sensory balls to explore what makes them the same and different and how each of them move. Books were also included for a literacy component about balls and the different sports that use them. We also included a ball pump so students can explore by blowing up their own balls for the study.
