Mrs. Ducey from Savannah GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need specimens of insects and slides of insects to learn about them.
I teach kindergarten students who are very enthusiastic and inquisitive learners. Their backgrounds are varied, from affluent to poverty level. Some are ESOL students, and some have special needs. Our school is large, with over 900 students in Pre-K through 5th grade. Our diverse population makes us special. Our curriculum focuses on student inquiry-based learning with a global perspective. For this age, hands-on learning is essential. They love to play in centers to learn financial literacy through a grocery store, create in an art center, build in a block and game center, listen to stories on a computer, read books in the reading center, and explore in the science center. They learn through play and by doing. Most of our daily instruction is in small groups using many different hands-on materials. Technology plays an important part in our classroom.
My students love to learn about living things. This is a big part of our curriculum. They are very interested in knowing more about bugs...how they move, their life cycle and what they eat. With these specimens, they will be able to make their own observations. With the butterfly larvae, they will get to watch the life cycle first hand in our classroom. With the preserved specimens they will see up close and be able to correctly identify insect parts. With the slides and view finder, they will get to see pictures of the insects in their own environment. The concept of living versus nonliving will be crystal clear to them.
