Mrs. Morris from Fargo ND is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Buzzing Into Spring

My students need math and science materials related to the content curriculum. At age 3 kids don't want to sit and listen to a teacher they want to touch and move to learn, hands on materials.

My Students

What makes my class special? Well, I have two amazing sessions of preschool children with a range of abilities. I have students with autism, hearing impairments, and a variety of unique syndromes. My students range in age from 3 years old to 5 years old. This is the beginning of their education, and we are laying the foundation for the next 12 to 15 years of school they have ahead of them. Every day I get to see magic happen, and the rewards are so many. The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.

My Project

We will be starting our month long unit on the study of bugs and having hands-on materials that the children can explore is what makes learning fun. The materials, we are requesting, will be used for learning centers in the classroom where small groups of children can touch, build and explore.

For many children, the idea of holding a bug causes anxiety but with the bug specimens they can safely hold and investigate up close how many legs does a spider have or a leaf beetle.

The shake and move cards will allow the children to use their critical thinking skills to help answer questions about the bugs and insects. The magnetic size sort rods will help student learn about size, color and attributes. The magnetic bug box will provide the children with another learning center that they can do independently.

We were lucky to get a light table this year and we are slowly building our collection of items to use with this great resource. The transparent bugs will allow our class to work on counting and sorting.
