My Students

My classroom is made up of 20 amazing learners. They come to class ready to learn despite the obstacles they face prior to stepping foot in the classroom.

We are a Title I school and almost all of my students are English language learners.

My students love coming to school because I make learning fun. My students work hard each and every day. Unfortunately, they need supplies that I can’t provide on my own.

This grant would support the entire first grade team including almost 100 STUDENTS!

My Project

The students will be studying about the changes a caterpillar makes to become a butterfly. The students will be able to watch as these tiny caterpillars grow and change into a butterfly. Have you ever watched how fast a tiny caterpillar grows? It is amazing. Students will be excited to see the changes as they occur. They will be able to tell you the stages and explain each stage because of the actual observations they will see.

Students will become interested in science, when they are involved with the process.

Just imagine the excitement of a 6 year old as they watch the caterpillar emerge from the chrysalis and are flying around in the cage.
