My students need materials to make science come to life through posters of the water cycle, mitosis, meiosis, as well as life-sized models of plant and animal cells.
Did you ever struggle to understand scientific concepts? Imagine how much my students could learn if they were given the opportunity to walk into a science class and feel as if they have transformed into scientists! This can happen through numerous posters and models that bring science to life!
400 at-risk students from low socio-economic families are going to walk through our doors soon.
Our school is a charter school which allows us to be innovative in our approach to education. We are promising our students and parents that each and every student will go to college and become successful individuals. This, however, is unusual for a school where 90% of our students are on free and reduced lunch. We do this by having an extended school day that allows our students to spend over 400 more hours in the classroom. Our students are dedicated, hard-working, and soaring high above their peers in their state. As we add a new grade level this year, we hope to continue the success that our students so strongly crave everyday in the classroom.
When teaching weather and climate, there are limited activities available to make learning fun. I would like posters and transparencies that can aid to the visual learners in my classes. On another note, for our biology unit, talking about plant and animal cells can be difficult for students as we cannot see the make-up of our own cells. By having models that my students can see and touch, science comes to life at the tip of their fingers. This will also be helpful as students prepare a project to construct their own cell model. I also chose dry erase markers because my school has very limited funding. It would be very beneficial to receive markers so that I may further the education of my students.
Being a charter school serving low-income students, a large amount of our budget goes towards providing meals and school supplies for our students.
It would mean a lot to my students to receive these supplies to help further their education as they continue to work towards college.Read More
