My Students

I am really excited to allow the children to have many hands-on experiences and wonderful learning opportunities due to a small class size. The children have been amazing. They are a bunch of wonderful children who are kind, caring, and eager to learn. The children have picked up on the routines and expected behaviors in the class and school quickly which has allowed us more time for fun learning experiences.

My goal this year is to provide opportunities for inquiry-based learning.

I feel the most meaningful learning happens when children are able to experience firsthand and be involved in the process. I would love to provide our science center with rich, intriguing, and fascinating materials for the children to manipulate, observe, and explore.

My Project

Some items I would love for my classroom are a worm habitat, life cycles of animals, items such as a light box that can enhance the learning happening. I also feel it is important to provide the children with props that promote dramatizing real life play such as the washer & dryer. All items will be utilized in a hands on learning experience accessible to the children in the science center and throughout the rest of the classroom.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student inquiry, exploration and learning, you will ultimately help to increase their thinking and knowledge base.
