Ours is a Title I School and like many other schools across the county, most of the children come from low income, poverty-stricken homes. Each and every child receives breakfast and lunch daily at no cost. Many live in low-income housing, hotels, and some are even in shelters. For many in my class, English is their second language and some have special needs. With that being said, they all love to come to school and want to learn. They deserve all the resources and fun we can give them.
My students are absolutely one of the most charming, and sweetest group of kids I have had the privilege of teaching!
These kiddos come in the door ready to learn and have fun. They will laugh, cry, hug, giggle, play, and learn all in one place: their classroom. Therefore, I am eager and ready to help each of them achieve their dreams.
Every spring my kindergarten class dives into a science unit about insects with an emphasis on the life cycle of the butterfly. It is, and always has been the favorite science unit for almost every child I have taught!
Oh yes, I love this unit too and I love to spread the joy of insects to my students!
I have requested the live butterfly kit so my students can witness the metamorphosis in person. They will use the magnifying glasses to look very closely at the caterpillars and butterflies as they grow and change as well as investigate the bugs marbles (bugs under glass). We will use the books to read about all bugs and how important they are to our world. These are resources that are no longer provided to classrooms due to budget cuts. It is up to teachers if we want to provide this amazing experience for our students.
