My students are motivated and eager to learn. They enjoy literature and discussing books. They have a wonderful knack for connecting personal experiences with the literature they have read. They enjoy being read to, and after they have heard books read to them, they can read them on their own. They are learning a new language and developing their vocabulary every day. I want them to develop a love of reading that will take them on great adventures!
I teach twenty-six first grade, second language learners, living in a low-income community in Los Angeles.
Our school is a Title I school with students from preschool to fifth grade. We strive to instill the idea in our students that they are "Thinkers, Leaders, and Change Makers!" I believe they all strive to have those qualities as the year progresses.
With Earth Day around the corner I want my students to plant some strawberries and learn about the life cycle of plants. I want my students to appreciate the plants that provide food for us to enjoy. What a better way than to get hands on experience with growing strawberries?
We need to learn about the plant life cycle first hand.
Planting the strawberry bare roots will go hand in hand with our upcoming trip to a Strawberry Farm. It will be an extension of the upcoming experience. The students will get to write about the growth process and take the plants to their homes at the end.
The 3 Osmo kits will be used at a learning center in order to minimize the waste of paper and to maximize our existing technology. The students will be using the resources in the Osmo Kits to practice math skills and how to use technology. We will use this resource to conserve paper.
