My Students

My quaint darling school is nestled in a rural community with twelve precious three year olds and twelve equally precious four year olds. The majority of my students are English Language Learners and are economically disadvantaged. This is my first year and I dream to give them hands on learning to bridge the academic gap, give them a head start to success, and connect the English language to meaningful content. I am truly blessed to be these children’s teacher. They are so full of curiosity and deserve the best!

My Project

These materials will allow my students to explore, build, grow, and create! They will be used for multiple uses and have endless opportunities to help my students internalize the learning.

I have submitted this project for much needed materials such as a science exploration table, flip charts to integrate academic vocabulary, and classroom garden supplies so that my students can learn and grow with nature.

This will allow my students ample opportunities to learn hands on about their world and explore the many avenues of science. These materials will make it possible to dive into the crazy fun of magnets, what living things need, recycling, seasons, plants, animals, matter, measurement (scientific and non-traditional), the weather, our body, ecosystems, habitats, and much more! Most of my students come from a disadvantaged, at risk, background and these materials will be the introduction to many new skills and learning.

The table and additional supplies can also be used for STEAM activities, allow students to learn hands on, and create for years to come. All materials can be reused and utilized for multiple purposes making them even more crucial to student success. At the critical ages of three and four, students must have concrete materials to truly understand. My students will be gaining unmeasurable amounts of knowledge, vocabulary, and confidence with these materials.

I cannot thank you all enough for helping me make dreams come true and allowing me to introduce my students to a world of possibilities! As stated before, most of my students come from a disadvantaged, at risk,background and I want to do everything possible to eliminate that risk with a high quality education and a safe, loving environment.
