My Students

"The highest result of education is tolerance." -Helen Keller

I teach in a full day kindergarten class.

My students are cute, eager readers, and motivated to learn. My students are a group of 5-6 year old. They come from a low income community. More than 95% of my students receive free or reduce breakfast and lunch. My students are made up of mostly English language learners. My students enjoy hands-on experiences. I have 23 students in my class. I enjoy working with my students every day..

My Project

My students are fascinated with these creepy crawly creatures known as ladybugs. They love watching them in the grassy fields at recess. Students will pick up the ladybugs and laugh when it flies off.

I would like to create a hand-on lessons about ladybugs for my kindergartners.

I am requesting a ladybug habitat, ladybug book and plastic containers to help my students research more about ladybugs. These items will help my students to be physically involved in the learning process. This wonderful ladybug habitat will allow my students to observe, record and analyze different science topics like the bugs' life cycle, environments, habitat, classification and more.

My students will record what they have observed with their kindergarten science journals which will increase their writing and comprehension. My students can use the plastic containers to organize and store their science journals.

Please help enrich our science curriculum with a ladybug habitat, book and plastic containers that help us understand more about science and make learning hands-on! Thank you in advance for helping me make science fun and exciting for my students!
