My Students

“It's not about what it is, it's about what it can become.” ― Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

I teach at an inner city school where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

I have a spunky and energetic group of first graders. They are full of questions and energy. They love coming to school each day, because they know it will be safe, warm, and they can eat. I work hard to provide the best learning environment that so they feel secure and loved.

My Project

We have one project that will help explain the importance of recycling and what items to recycle. They will watch items decompose/not decompose and learn the significance of reduce, reuse and recycle. I want to take this to the next level by having my students help upcycle and recycle items in our classroom for the school. We will collect old broken crayons and turn them into new crayons in the silicone molds. The crayon paper and other recycled paper will be used to make new paper. Students will collect cans at home and we will upcycle these using duck tape. I believe these projects will spark their imagination and we will extend the upcycling projects to include their ideas as well.

The recycled paper, crayons and upcycled cans will be put together as sets given out to other students in the school.

My first graders will visit classrooms and explain how each item was made and share important facts about recycling. This will be a great program to extend school wide and back into the home.
