My Students

I have 19 very active kindergarteners! My class is currently made up of 9 girls and 10 boys. Half of my students come from low-income households. These numbers a typical from year to year. I also have english language learners in my class and students with disabilities. Our class theme is frogs!

Kindergarteners learn best through exploration, discovery, movement, and play.

I love to find ways to teach my students in a way that is fun for them. We dance, sing, and create every day all while learning to read, write, do math and be friends.

My Project

Please help me give my kindergarten students an inviting, hands on science center that will provide unlimited opportunities for learning through discovery! I have specifically chosen each item to match our kindergarten curriculum. I believe that these items will help my class get excited about science and learning!

All students need to learn through discovery and hands on activities!

This is especially true for young children who are just beginning in school. I also feel it is imperative for english language learners and students with special needs to learn through using their five senses.

I chose the aquarium, specimens, animal match, animal skeletons and butterfly nursery to bring nature inside the classroom to reach all students daily. The human x-rays and light table will help my young students understand their own bodies and how they work. And lastly, I chose discovery tubes and light & sound circuits to help expand my students' ability to make scientific inquiries. These items will allow me to take my science center to this level.
