I teach Kindergarten in the state of South Carolina. I work in a Title One School (high poverty with 52.2% of our Kindergarten students qualifying for free or reduced lunch). 8 out of the 18 students in my class are ESOL learners. For some of my students, this year of Kindergarten is their very first school experience.
My students have expressed a huge interest in our Science Center this year. It is, by far, the most popular activity in our classroom. My students tell me that they want to be "real" scientists!!! They have expressed interests in microscopes, light, magnets, watching things grow, and much more! This is only my second year teaching at this school, and I don't have enough materials to provide my students with the rich, hands-on experiences that I would like to. I would love to enhance my Science Center and Science instruction with the materials requested in this proposal.
I have requested mirrors, safety prisms, a large view microscope, prepared slides, small window greenhouses (with two extra greenhouses and growing crystals), a large classroom greenhouse, and Instant Science Learning Centers (topics include: My Body, Life Cycles, Nutrition, Five Senses, Plants, Weather and Seasons, Magnets, and Color Mixing). These activities will not only enhance Science learning and instruction, but will enhance my students skills in reading, writing, math, and much more! These materials will provide rich learning experience and will cover many topics of interest for the students in my class!
Your help will ensure that my students will achieve their goal of becoming "real" scientists! You will make it possible for my students to have materials that will support high quality instruction in Science (integrated with reading, writing, math, and more)! Please help us create our very own Discovery Science Lab!!!
