Mrs. Glenn from Bakersfield CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

This year I have 19 inquisitive learners.

Nine students in my class are English Learners, one receives special services, and one is in speech.

My students are smart, hardworking young people who search for new information everyday. They have compassion for one another and strive to make meaningful contributions to our classroom community.

My heart is with these children who come from an impoverished, rural area with little resources outside of school. These children rely on me to ignite their minds and feed their curiosity.

Next year, I'm expecting 23 new scholars.

My Project

Children have a natural curiosity and fascination about how things work.

I want to give my students the resources to investigate, observe, and discover more about their world.

Using the science viewers and building brick challenge kit, students will be able to work cooperatively in small groups to follow step-by-step directions and problem solve. My kindergartners will use cognitive skills to understand how and why objects work as they do.

Along with a more in depth knowledge of Science, Math, and Engineering, the students will improve their listening and speaking abilities through cooperative learning. Improving children's communication skills is crucial to ensuring their educational success.
